CNB Gallery is delighted to present Brains & Lip Takeover, showcasing the work of nine female artists, a group show curated by Alice Steffen and Claire Orme.

Controversial, brash and witty, the artworks on view challenge and reclaim what it means to be a woman in contemporary society. The subversive painting, illustration and sculpture that feature in the exhibition explore discourses of identity, sexuality and female empowerment, resisting the restrictive expectations of the elitist, patriarchal art world.

Exhibiting artists include its curators and the creative duo behind Brains & Lip, Alice Steffen and Claire Orme, as well as Karina Akopyan, Nicky Carvell, Jess De Wahls, Hells Gibson, Rebecca Mason, Lottie Hughes and Riikka Hyvonen.

Says exhibition curator and co-founder of Brains & Lip, Claire Orme: ‘Now more than ever, female artists and women in general need to demonstrate solidarity, utilise our collective strength and have our voices heard. Females everywhere are pissed off, threatened and scared, but also provoked by current misogynistic politics. This exhibition is exciting, because it elevates the work of women who actively transgress the patriarchal conventions of politics and the art world. Brains & Lip have selected a group of women who will not be silenced and whose weapon of choice in this fight is art.’

Adds her co-curator and co-founder, Alice Steffen: ‘This show is comprised of female artists with something really interesting to say. Their work represents the now, the politics of women’s rights and their thoughts. I chose to become an artist at a young age because I saw the work of strong females whose practice moved me, but since then, I have come across too much work that is so dull a wet wipe would be more interesting to see on a wall. I will say that the women in this show have a brass neck and have their shit together.’
