Hervisions London – Celebrating Women in Moving Image
In a world that still maintains an overwhelming presence of males to females in the world of media and art, filmmaker Zaiba Jabbar decided to challenge the male dominance by setting up a project dedicated to women. An event and movement celebrating female contemporary artists and directors in moving image, Hervisions.
The second Hersions event on 24th November at Second Home, Spitalfields celebrated artists and directors from around the world with an experiential industry/press evening of talks, panel discussions, immersive screenings, presentations, exhibition, drinks, and networking.
The exhibition on the 25th November was open to the public, with the clear intention of generating awareness and interest in the medium of moving image and more specifically drawing attention to these talented female artists.
Collaborators spanned the disciplines of art, photography, and film, with events combining screenings, panel discussions and a physical space for female creators to come together. Hervisions acted as digital curators celebrating the wealth of work created by talented women globally.
Artists included Kate Bones, Blake Kathryn, Chloe Feinberg, Petra Cortright, Kathryn Ferguson, Renderfruit, Lucy Macrae, Anny Wang, Hannah Lux Davis, Margot Bowman, Zaiba Jabbar, Eva Papamargariti, Jenn Nkiru, Helen Benigson, Maria Forque, Sam Cannon, Mollie Mills, Lucy Luscomb, Laura Colada, Lucy Hardcastle, Claudia Mate, Dadpranks, Lauren Goshinski, Isla Hansen, Kate Hansen, Elina Malkin, Nina Sarnelle, Laura Warman, Aleia, Rodan Tekle, Harriet Middleton, Marie Schuller, Taz Tronic
