Anna Dorrington

From the 5th to the 30th of September 2016

the Serpentine Community Gallery will be the venue for

local artist Anna Dorrington's solo exhibition

"Fairytales".

'My interests lie in the area of feminist critiques of

the history of women in society in the 1960s and 1970s,

and the effects these social conditions have had

on contemporary constructions of society and women,'

said Anna of her upcoming show.

The opening celebration for

"Fairytales"

will take place on Sunday

the 11th of September from 2pm.

Also on view during these dates: Zac Theroux's

From 16th September 2015,

two of our innovative and inspiring local female artists will be holding separate exhibitions:

Under Pressure

- a collection of recent work by

Anna Dorrington -

and

'Unravelling'

- a solo exhibition by Paulette Hayes.

Both these exhibitions are on show from

16th September to 13th October.

The Opening Night celebration

is on Friday 18th September, 6-8pm.

A multimedia artist who reinvents found materials and retro images in her work,

Anna’s exhibition

'Under Pressure'

looks at the somewhat antiquated

and disempowering ritual of

the extravagant wedding

and what it implies for the modern woman.
