ME 2 U: A collective manifesto

Nunnery Gallery

13 May - 7 August

How do we enrich our lives and sustain a positive, healthy mindset? This is the question at the heart of London-based art collective Baesianz’s curation of the 2022 Bow Open, as they investigate the tools, rituals and routines that provide us with joy, growth and grounding.

In ME 2 U: A collective manifesto, Baesianz called upon Bow Arts artists to share their methods of survival, in an ode to the ceremony of togetherness and the resourcefulness found not just within oneself, but in community too. Presenting 20 artists works, each provides a visual representation of a love letter to the past, present, and future. The exhibition explores regenerative themes surrounding rebirth and renewal, a reclamation of feminist and queer narratives, and the honouring of nature, both internal and external, as material.
