Help us to bring the Every Woman Biennial, the world's largest and leading all-woman and non-binary art exhibition to London in 2021.

Help us to transform our streets into open-air galleries that support artists during COVID and celebrate the divine feminine!


We are taking over several Koppel Project locations in central London1614699277_landcibulka.jpeg and transforming them into a three-month art extravaganza that celebrates the Divine Feminine. With artworks from Mickalene Thomas, Swoon, Guerilla Girls, Tracey Emin, Katharina Cibulka, and many more help us to create an exhibition that celebrates the full breadth of contemporary art at the fourth Every Woman Biennial.

Your pledges will go towards an international open call, free-to-access exhibitions in Central London. With your help, we can provide the opportunity for over 200 international artists to exhibit at this p1614954186_screen_shot_2021-03-05_at_14.22.48.pngrime London location. Opportunities like these exhibitions are increasingly rare due to Covid, with many financial barriers to access, like application fees and high commission rates - which we have waived. By pledging support you will help create opportunities for emerging artists to exhibit their work alongside Mickalene Thomas, Swoon, Tracey Emin, Michaela Yearwood-Dan, Katharina Cibulka, Cecily Brown, C. Finley, Guerilla Girls, and many more. With your support, we will also be able to commission five of our artists to create new public artworks both in the UK and the US.

The fund will also go towards 'Since Statues are Sacrosanct' a large-scale installation, running throughout July at Custom House in collaboration with journalist and presenter Afua Hirsch, Mallence Bart-Williams, and artist Pasha Michaelson in response to new legislation that criminalises protesting and the damage of statues whilst failing to protect women and femme bodies from assault. SINCE STATUES ARE SACROSANCT collects testimonies & sculptures from sexual assault survivors as a stand-in for protestors, in a time when physical protest is not safely - or legally - possible. These proxy protestors act as a critical mass that has the power and privilege to protest, unlike us. Furthermore, this will be a healing space where survivors are heard, uplifted, and loved. The statues will be donated and visitors are encouraged to take the statues and place them at sites of personal or political significance. 

Why it's important and who will benefit.

The pandemic has wreaked havoc on the contemporary art world, especially for emerging artists who have lost funding, exhibitions, and networking opportunities. With your help we can provide these!

In the UK “64% of art students identify as female, but men make up 68% of the artists represented by UK galleries.” This shows us that, even before Covid-19, from a young age, people who identify as female and non-binary are not given the same opportunities as their male contemporaries. Galleries have a responsibility to correct these biases and prejudices that are built within the system, yet just 13.7% of living artists, represented by galleries in Europe and North America, identify as female...

...Help us level the field within the market by funding these exhibition opportunities and lifting up the voices of these artists in a Covid-safe environment. Every Woman Biennial London will be a huge gain for the creative and cultural landscapes of the UK...

In the wake of 2020, a year that has forced physic1614702055_screen_shot_2021-03-02_at_16.20.32.pngal separation, we want to illuminate our interconnectedness and the power we hold when we stand united. EVERY WOMAN BIENNIAL 2021 will bring female and non-binary artists together from across the globe in the spirit of community and collaboration, to investigate themes of identity, sexuality, and activism.


By donating to the Every Woman Biennial you will help us to fix these issues by building space for individuals that mainstream galleries have failed to create.

Testimonial: Mickalene Thomas, Artist

"The Every Woman 1614698989_screen_shot_2021-03-02_at_15.29.07.pngBiennial serves as an important platform with which to explore the richness and diversity of contemporary female artists through its witty and intelligent programming, the event is a worthy counterweight to the multitude of festivals, biennials, and fairs that populate the art calendar. This is fresh, necessary, and transformative discourse - of which I am happy to support.

Where your money will go...

  • Fund exhibitions in London Bridge, Peckham, and Soho.
  • Fund public artworks by Katharina Cibulka and Tereza Buskova.
  • Create an emergency relief fund for artists due to COVID-19


EVERY WOMAN BIENNIAL is a love letter to the world, please help us to write it.
