major inspiration for the project was the tendency by some in the media to
describe particular women as 'the most dangerous woman in' Scotland, or the UK,
or the world.", Jo Shaw, editor 'The Art of Being Dangerous'
The Art of Being Dangerous offers many different images of women, some humorous,
some challenging, some well-known, some forgotten, but all unique. In a
dazzling variety of creative forms, artists and writers of diverse identities
explore what it means to be a dangerous woman.
With almost 100 evocative images, this collection
showcases an array of contemporary art that highlights the staggering breadth
of talent among today's female artists. It offers an unparalleled gallery of feminist
creativity, ranging from emerging visual artists from the UK to
multi-award-winning writers and translators from the Global South.
