2023 has been a slightly quieter year for us as we recovered following our epic 10 year anniversary celebration in 2022, where we opened our first Art Bypass Gallery. It has also felt like a year to be quieter with greater reflection, considering the horrors, injustices and abuses of power, including genocide that we are witnessing around the world. It has been important to us to add our voices to the many calls for equity and humanity.
We did however visit many arts events and made new arty friends around the world including visits to York, Edinburgh, the Liverpool Biennial and Art Autumn in Vienna! We also loved the London take over of mighty Marina Abramovic and the Tate Women in Revolt show. We also joined WOW festival again this year too. This time we represented chosen women artists at a stall in the market place and sold quite a few artworks and merch. Everyone loves our t-shirts right?!
Most importantly for us we opened our new gallery space, the latest incarnation of the Art Bypass Gallery and launched with our first exhibition ‘Wetting the Baby's Head’. It is a cozy and inclusive space, which feels appropriate for now, situated in Dalston E8 and we hope to continue to use Sweet ‘Art to offer opportunity and community to those that continue to feel underrepresented and marginalised in the art scene. The new gallery also houses our intersectional, feminist and queer focused zine and text library so do get in touch if you would like to contribute your work to that!
