I FELT THAT: a collection of art and writing exploring gender and pain.

Sold out


Published: March 10 2023


Ache is delighted to be publishing a catalogue in collaboration with 'I FELT THAT' an exhibition that featured 13 artists whose work explores the complex language of gendered pain which ran from 30.06.22 - 03.07.22 at THE TUB HACKNEY.

This special publication from Ache will feature the artist's work, Q&As and include additional writings from Ache contributors. This collaboration aims to elevate voices that have been marginalised by androcentric medicine to create vital conversations around the complex experiences of gender, illness and pain today.
