Local artist’s ‘female equality’ programme is hailed as “powerful” and “empowering” by the Honorary Consul of Italy in Northern Ireland.
Speaking after visiting Lise McGreevy’s I AM WOMAN solo show at the Linenhall Library in Belfast citycentre, Dr Federica Ferrieri said: “What a powerful and empowering exhibition. Especially for the women belonging to the many ethnic groups in Northern Ireland.
She added: “As it reminds us of the importance of taking intersectionality into the picture to co-design a fair and equal Northern Irish society.”
Two years in the making, Lise’s collection is spread out over 4 floors of the library. This is the latest pit-stop of its year long tour throughout NI. Ending in December, the artist then aims to showcase the collection, and promote its message, in Ireland, UK and hopefully internationally.
Lise said: “Next it will be showcased at St Mary University College for Feile an Phobail (4 – 11 August). Before being hosting in The Market Place, Armagh during Sept and Oct. Finally, ending the year at The Oriel Gallery in Antrim.”
She added: “But for now, I am delighted to be exhibiting in such an iconic, historical landmark venue. I am so pleased that the Consulate took time out of her busy schedule to visit the exhibition.
“I hope that its message of female equality will be well received, by all who visit the library during its hosting until 29th July.
