Liane Brandon, Anything You Want To Be, 1971, 8 mins. Courtesy of the artist.

A selection of short films in response to our current exhibition, Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance, Act 2.

Homework Screening responds to and expands on ideas within the exhibition Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance, Act 2. The films reflect the different ways that female artists and filmmakers have responded to a range of spaces, with unfolding interior narratives, unexpected social encounters and powerful performances.

Homework is a collaborative project developed by Sharon Haward and Clare Sheppeard that explores the contributions women artists, designers and architects made to the Modernist movement. Homework focuses on the idea that architecture can be a ‘protective shell against the world’ (Eileen Gray) rather than ‘a machine for living’. (Le Corbusier)
