Women in the Spotlight’
Always Uneven in partnership with Magnet Gallery is happy to announce the third edition of the ‘Live in the Gallery’. Once again this event will bring live performances into the gallery’s space.
This time we will be celebrating women in the Arts. Female photographers, singers, composers, dancers, actors, musicians, fashion designers will get together to share an inspiring show with the audience.
We are delighted to have Imogen Pemberton music as the main act of the night!
Imogen mesmerises audiences with her broad vocal range, soaring melodies and sophisticated guitar playing. Within her folk ballads she touches on many genres but always stays true to her own unique sound. Her pure organic tone and honesty within her lyrics displays a maturity beyond her years that reaches listeners on a personal level. Imogen will be performing alongside Cellist Oliver Downes. Together the dynamic duo present a hauntingly beautiful soundscape that both nourishes the soul and breaks the heart.
Music, poetry, dance will be the dialogue whilst the astonishing photo exhibition ‘Songs of Innocence’ - 2019 women photographers’ exhibition. Every march, Magnet Gallery organises and curates this exhibition.
This is a collective show and the theme for the 2019 exhibition is based on English poet William Blake’s highly political poem collections “Songs of Innocence and Experience” . Written in the early 19th Century, at the height of the Industrial Revolution, these poems provide a biting commentary on the essential innocence of childhood and its abuse by an industrialised society.
This theme has been interpreted by the photographers in many ways – philosophy, symbolism, abstract, documentary, polemic - to produce a varied and illuminating commentary on our times.
Susanne Silver will give us the pleasure to connect deeply with the exhibition by reciting some the Blake’s poems on the night!
Colourful Collective will be exhibiting their fashion made with waste, and show a bit of their artistic project Debris.
