From a nuclear family mindset in the 1950’s to a fight for women’s independence and equality in the 1970’s, there now appears to be a new uprising amongst the current generation of women. Could unrelenting maternal instincts, a reinvigoration of lost traditions and a cultural backlash to the fiery feminism of the 60’s and 70’s be attributed to the next wave of women embracing their role in the home?

Curated by Sue-Ching Lascelles, Gentle Persuasion is an all-female exhibition exploring the contemporary woman’s return to the domesticated life. Eight emerging and established artists will chant their mantra that domestic does not equal dull.
