Carolee Schneemann | Free the Pussy! | Sumerhall, Edinburgh

June 19, 2018

Hales Gallery is proud to announce the inclusion of Carolee Schneemann's Mysteries of the Pussies in the exhibition Free the Pussy! at Sumerhall, Edinburgh. 

 

Artist Tamsyn Challenger curates a new exhibition this summer of works of art made in protest to Pussy Riot’s imprisonment by the Russian government in 2012: ‘Free The Pussy’. 

 

This new exhibition aims to be an archive of the global protest in support of the Pussy Riot’s call. The show will include artist responses that can be seen in the book, alongside many others who stood in condemnation at the women’s imprisonment. This is the first time many of these pieces made in protest have been brought together for display. All of these works are as relevant now as they were then and stand as a testimony to the power of a woman’s voice.
