The Surveilled is a three day exhibition exploring the male gaze in the digital age – asking how our increasing online presence alters and affects the ways women’s images are presented. The Mancunian feminist duo One Fine Night, a pairing of two great minds with a passion for women’s rights and a fondness for wine have specially curated this one-off weekend of art and feminist works. Launching at speciality coffee shop, Idle Hands near Piccadilly, the opening night promises spoken word and poppy beats from DJ Glen Cutwerk. Featuring artists from throughout the UK, Sweden and Spain, the exhibition is hosted over two floors, and presents a selection of video installations, photography, fine art and mixed media. One Fine Night are also working in conjunction with the charity Women for Women International, a charity working to improve the lives of women globally. Donations will be encouraged on the door, and all proceeds will go to Women for Women.
