WOMEN TO THE FRONT

February 02 to March 31, 2019


In spite of the biting winter weather that walloped the city last Wednesday night, a warm and jovial glow emanated from inside Museum London as the earliest celebrations of the upcoming Juno Awards took place. One of the three exhibitions opening was “Women To The Front” (W2TF), a fearless documentation of the realities women and non-binary folx in music face. This includes (and is not limited to) a wide spectrum of people; from band members, to sound technicians, and music management. The engaging exhibit set up is reminiscent of a classic venue, from a green room to a stage (featuring a very impressive neon sign). This environment invites the viewer to consider the small details that can make a big impact on accessibility and creating inclusive spaces. In collaboration with the JUNO’s Host Committee, the exhibition was guest curated by Savanah Sewell. Savanah is the recently elected manager of Dundas Place, as well as organizer of many important events such as Grickle Grass and the London Girl’s Rock Camp. Savanah worked with a variety of artists from London and beyond to bring the exhibit together.

"W2TF is part of the ongoing conversation about women and those who identify as such who work in and around music and arts. It's layered, it's never ending but it's crucial. In order to move forward we have to work together and make space for others. This show is a reflection of community, as many, many hands went into to making this show a reality. From set design to the posters, screen printing to the interviews I'm humbled by all these remarkable people who made time to participate." – Savanah Sewell
