Mal(e)feasance is an intention to unite and showcase the work of artists who are over- looked and disadvantaged on the basis of gender. In a system of demarcation that favors individuals over others disguised as a meritocracy, there is still a desperate need for the creation of platforms that attempt to right this disparity. Manifesting the reparative qualities of work through repetition, invocation and making is a means of empowerment in the face of judgment.

Looking at language associated with the alienation of female identifying and gender non-binary individuals, specifically as makers, the work becomes a tool of unification through the creation of an autonomous platform. Showcasing artist from the Royal College of Art pursuing contemporary art practices, through moving image, digital, sculpture, print and installation the final exhibition will attempt to create an incantation to galvanize and mobilize both artists and viewers.
