Inspired by the tidal wave of change that has been sweeping the world, At the Gates brings together artists whose voices have amplified the global struggle towards female self-empowerment, and in the case of Ireland’s historic fight against the Eighth Amendment, right to bodily self-determination.

Often brushing up against the law, or institutions of power, these artists and their individual projects attest to the volume that can amass as these voices, images, banners, objects and artworks become part of a public discussion.

Shown alongside Jesse Jones’ performance installation 'Tremble Tremble', the implication is clear: “tremble, tremble, the witches have returned”.
