PHLOX

Carly Jean Andrews (USA) / Tuesday Bassen (USA) / Laura Callaghan (UK) / Anna Deflorian (Italy) / Cécile Gariépy (Canada) / Penelope Gazin (USA) / Fiona McDonnell (UK) / Shannon Wright (USA)

12.10.17 – 26.11.17
Opening reception: Thursday 12 October, 6pm–8pm, featuring a live set by GIRL DJs.

Featuring a stimulating mix of established and emerging talent from around the world, Phlox showcases some of the most vital work being made by female illustrators today. A survey conducted in 2010 by contemporary illustration magazine 3x3 discovered that of 527 illustrators living around the world, every female illustrator – on average – made less than her male counterpart.

Phlox demonstrates how illustration industry sexism cannot silence female perspectives, with depictions of women as diverse as those who create them, exploring identity, race, sexuality, and representation.
