FINAL Stance Poster .png

Sweet ‘Art has a cosy new home after 12 years of success as an arts organisation giving opportunity to hundreds of artists that may be marginalised in the art world. The Art Bypass Gallery’s latest incarnation is in London Dalston E8, a vibrant part of London’s cultural scene, in a beautiful converted Victorian shop and we are delighted to invite you to our invite only opening party or for a by-appointment curators guided tour of the 2 week exhibition.


Titled Stance, the exhibition reflects Sweet ‘Art’s mission, ethos and foundations in inclusivity, intersectional feminism, art meets activism, and engagement with important social issues through art. In times of oppression, where the personal is political, it is more important than ever that we continue to use art as a tool for resistance, protest and as a challenge to injustice.

25 selected and accomplished artists explore the theme in diverse and thought provoking ways, with exhibition curation that aims to engage and challenge audiences through an inclusive and accessible lens.

Artworks relate to concepts of challenging normative power, striving through adversity, standing up for what you believe in or asserting your rights and the rights of others, as well as some who movingly reflect on lived and personal experience, in response to the show’s title.  

So why not join us on the 13th of June for our opening arty party for a Sweet Art signature cocktail along with some other goodies and surprises. It’s always fun at a Sweet ‘Art party!
