For further context

'The work of Maya Angelou (1928 – 2014), acclaimed American poet, 
storyteller, autobiographer and civil rights activist, forms the 
starting point for this exhibition.

The exhibition title, “Still We Rise”, is inspired by Maya Angelou’s 
1978 poem “Still I Rise”. The poem urged the importance of reigniting 
self-worth in order to fight against oppressions. Today inequalities 
remain rife and even permeate the technologies that pervade our lives – 
from a holocaust denying twitter bot, to the gendered labour of 
artificial intelligence. In this context, “Still We Rise” will examine 
the systems which perpetuate inequalities from the perspective and 
locale of an international group of women, non-binary, femme-identifying 

“Still We Rise” will ask what systems – visible and hidden – do we need 
to rise up against or beyond today? What is invisible or absent and 
needs to be seen or heard? And by whom?'
