This March, Galerie SLP is displaying the works of female artists celebrating their contributions to society, history and culture with an energizing, bright and authentic feel. From the 4th to the 28th of March, a group of International female artists from diverse backgrounds will be showcasing their works. Spanning from small scale collages and photography to large scale paintings. The art encourages a discourse on mental health, beauty standards, identity and a more general question of what it means to be a woman. In celebrating an inclusive and inherently feminist message of equality and diversity, the exhibit sparks a conversation on how to better interhuman relationships, love, acceptance and tolerance regardless of gender or background. The patriarchal narrative which has repressed female artists from participating in art history and the art scenes throughout different epochs is deconstructed, exposed and replaced with a joyful and democratic look on topics that surround and inspire us to create. Viewers are encouraged to question outdated but yet still very widespread narratives about leaving women and non-binary people out of discussions about the human experience. Predominant opinions which shape how we view society, advance in science, health and how culture is formed. The International Womxns Month exhibition at Galerie SLP opens a vital discussion about womanhood, gender equality, stereotypes and ways to better ourselves as a more inclusive society.

About the artists:
Wanda Stang: Wanda Stang is a Berlin based mixed media artist from Bad Saarow who uses her pieces to explore the cycles of life and human happiness. Her works merge painting, sculpture, and fabric to create a fascinating blend of dimensions that challenges our perceptions. In a recent piece, Wanda broke free from the traditional canvas format by adding layers of linen and an unexpected shape. Her characters' eyes are painted with unique perspectives, reflecting the diversity of people's viewpoints.
Conxi Sane: When Conxi Sane graduated in Fashion, nobody could have guessed she was destined to become a visionary painter. But six years ago, she picked up a paintbrush and unleashed a tidal wave of creativity that has captivated audiences across Europe. With her work, Conxi fearlessly delves into the subconscious, drawing inspiration from the likes of Surrealism and Cubism. She's an artist in the truest sense, taking cues from legends like Picasso, Miró, and Le Corbusier to create stunning, one-of-a-kind pieces. Music is a major driving force in her creative process, with Latin Jazz being the latest muse to ignite her palette. Her latest series has been met with widespread acclaim, solidifying her status as a rising star in the art world.
Edina Picco: Edina Picco is a Berlin based collage artist, whose passion for art was instilled in her at an early age by her father and a circle of inspiring artists. Despite pursuing other careers in literature, economics, and international crisis and aid work, Picco”s love for art never faded. Teaching art at a public school in 2017 reignited her passion, and in 2019 she turned her focus to contemporary collage art. Since then, Edina has been creating breathtaking pieces that challenge traditional notions of art and leave viewers in awe.
