Dovetailing nicely with the 6 of the Best festival this weekend showcasing the best in cinema from UK female filmmakers, Bad Girls presents is the first in what is going to be a series of events highlighting female artists from around the Midlands. Six artists working across a range of mediums will have art on display. Elizabeth Ilsley’s range of slogan adorned leather jackets have caused quite a stir, but we absolutely love her challenging neon porn print series Zero Fucks Given. Molly Cleaver already has a highly recommended exhibition of her arresting art running at Minerva Works. Hannah Al-Shemmeri’s comic art you may be familiar with from the several posters she has produced for local events as well as appearing in magazines. We’re just skimming the surface here; add tattooist Emily Carroll, Brazilian Brummie artist Priscila Magalhães Bezerra Baker and the manga inspired portraits of Lily Gabrielle, that’s half a dozen of the best Bad Girls artists in one place. It’s not just art though, the evening will be rounded off with DJ sets till the early hours.
Fri 20 Jan 7.30pm at Mockingbird, The Custard Factory, B9 4AA Birmingham Free (suggested £3 donation)
