Up and coming North-East artist Slutmouth takes over Base Camp, Middlesbrough to pay tribute to female-identifying, working class artists through part three of her exhibition, Let Us Eat Cake. 

The exhibition will feature in Base Camp’s gallery, the Sky Room, Yellow Room and the Piano Room. The aim is to create an empowering platform for the artists, female ran businesses as well as inspiring and engaging with a new, forward thinking generation of artists. 

During the run up to the exhibition, the platform and venue will also be used to raise funds for My Sister’s Place, a local charity that supports women. Last year’s exhibition raised £259.28.

Bettie Hope of Slutmouth adds…
“I am so excited to be bringing ‘Let us Eat Cake’ back for a third time. It’s an  absolute honour to once again have the opportunity to curate some fabulous and  thought provoking work from a group of amazing female working class creatives. This has all been made possible with the help from Middlesbrough Council’s Town  Centre Animation Commission and the wonderful team at Base Camp. It feels so  good to be back there doing interesting things.”

The exhibition launches at 5-10pm on Tuesday 8th March (International Women’s Day) with a preview featuring live music, themed drinks and, of course, cakes on offer. The exhibition will remain on display Wednesday 9th March (2-9pm) and Thursday 10th March (12-5pm). Entry is free and wheelchair access is available.
