Spekyng Rybawdy, a run of silk scarves by Melanie Jackson, will be exhibited and available to purchase at SupaVenezia from August 31st at A plus A Gallery. You can also purchase a scarf at the Matt's Gallery online shop here.
SupaVenazia is the latest iterative in Sarah Staton's 29-year global exhibition series, SupaStore, and is co-curated by the School for Curatorial Studies Venice 2022 cohort. 10% of sales will be donated to We are here Venice, an independent non-profit organisation dedicated to the conservation of Venice as a living city.
Spekyng Rybawdy is Melanie Jackson’s ongoing project exploring the transgressive narratives and explicit symbolism of Medieval pilgrim ‘bawdy' badges. Through a carnival of colourful, erotically charged characters, Spekyng Rybawdy encourages us to re-examine not only our ideas about who took part in the production and circulation of imagery in the medieval period - but also how this might enable us to reconsider the origins of dissenting representations, sexual politics and our attitudes and behaviours today.
Venue: A Plus A Gallery, San Marco 3073
