Friday 23rd October 7pm-1am: The artists take their work to the streets. Arrive before 8pm or face the wrath of the Sisters. ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN.

Join us in a celebration of joyous dissent and trouble-making. The Art of Nuisance is a 15 day series of workshops, events and gatherings to celebrate feminist activism. Subverting the patronising claim by politicians of the time that militant suffragettes were merely ‘making a nuisance of themselves’, we are dedicating two weeks to rowdy art and agitation by women. This is beautifully executed discontent which you can participate in.

Over summer of 2015 Miss Pokeno invited five young emerging artists to the Sisters’ HQ at London Bridge to create an Instrument Of Nuisance. Each artist was given ten days and resources to interpret this brief however they chose. The resulting work will be exhibited at the opening show on the 8th of October. Expect wayward and extravagant work from sonic artist Fari Bradley; web meddler Meg Mosley; as well as anarchist artist Cristinalina (aka Gold Peg); feminist art provocateur Sarah Maple; and still-at-art-school-but-you-just-wait Rebecca Jackson.

There will be dissenters’ workshops, film nights and soup salons, not to mention inter-generational feminist arm-wrestling (sign up now), intelligent, rumbustious, joyous, gin-fuelled mayhem in the back streets of Southwark.

More details below.

It is in the anarchic nature of the Art of Nuisance that events will slip and slide. Some will only be announced the day or hour before the happening. Some may not be revealed at all.
