NOHAT was founded in 2016 by curators Sophie Atkins and Ana Ortega, born out of a frustration that the work of female artists often remains unseen and unrecognised, and out of a deep desire to bring about change. We are not going to wait to be invited in, we will take space and make space for female-identifying artists. Since 2016, we have put on several large group exhibitions, a performance art festival, a video screening event, artist talks, DJ nights, worked in collaboration with the Panacea Museum and artist Andy Holden, and shown work of over 100 artists from all over the globe. We pride ourselves on giving opportunities to artists who might not have had the chance to exhibit work before, while also showing more established names.
