EXHIBITION NOW ON!
MONICA SJÖÖ – THE TIME IS NOW AND IT IS OVERDUE!
Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall
11 June – 10 September 2022
This collaboration between Beaconsfield, Feminist Library and the Estate of Monica Sjöö, brings Sjöö’s life and work into fresh focus with a largely unseen corpus of paintings. The unapologetic figuration of artist and activist Monica Sjöö (1938-2005) predates contemporary articulations of an Ecofeminism that regards climate crisis, colonialism and ever-present militarism as interlocking systems of oppression.
The exhibition runs from the 11th June until 10th September 2022.
During the show the curatorial team has invited a selection of artists who have an affinity to Monica’s work and life outlook.
Visionary. Feminist. Goddess Artist. Writer. Activist.
A warm welcome to the official website of Monica Sjöö, created to celebrate her life, work and extraordinary art.
This website was created by family and friends of Monica in response to many requests to share her remarkable legacy of paintings and writings.
Monica Sjöö (1938-2005) was one of the foremost artists of our times. She was also an author, poet and pioneer feminist scholar, as well as a lifelong activist for peace, pagans, women, social justice, the environment and her beloved Mother Earth.
May this online memorial allow old and new friends to appreciate the rich variety of her work and be inspired by the haunting beauty of images which can take us across dimensions of time and space!
We hope you'll enjoy exploring the magic of Monica's art, her thought provoking writings and some memories of her life.
