Given the two-month residency of shado’s I AM A WOMXN exhibition in Waterstones Gower St., shado will be hosting a panel discussion with four of its exhibiting photographers: Alia Romagnoli, Sali Mudawi, Nancy Hurman and Mario Washington.
The exhibition itself is a celebration of the intersectionalities of womxnhood. There is no one way of identifying as a woman, and shado wanted to leave it up to a community of 18 global photographers to broaden this definition. Each of the photographers listed above are currently London-based, and bring a unique angle to their images.
Alia Romagnoli situates herself within a queer, South Asian, youth community: her image is a self-portrait.
Sali Mudawi, a Sudanese-born and Sweden-raised photographer, has taken a portrait of Hibo Wardare, prominent anti-FGM campaigner and survivor.
Nancy Hurman’s image is of Boby, a trans sex worker from Nepal who is an active advocate for Blue Diamond Society, a charity working for the rights of the LGBTQI+ community in Kathmandu.
Mario Washington works in a London-based think tank which looks specifically at gentrification and regeneration. Her picture celebrates women in a Nigerian community in the city.
The panel will be chaired by shado and focus on the project itself and how each photographer artistically navigated the topic.
