In response to Charli XCX’s film exploring depictions of the female form, we revisited the Schiele/Woodman exhibition at Tate Liverpool, working with Deborah Riding from Tate’s Learning Department and local graphic artist, Emily Salinas to facilitate a creative activity designed to help young people explore themes of identity and positive body image.

Students from Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School in West Derby, Liverpool and young women from Liverpool’s Young People’s Advisory Service (YPAS) engaged in the sessions, which involved feedback from their own responses to the exhibition, lively discussions focusing on body image in the age of social media, and the creation of positive signs designed to challenge ideas of perfection.

The final signs are now on display in our very own Rapid Response Unit exhibition space

on the upper level of St John’s Market.
