We teamed up with Crossroads Centre Beijing, China and prepared an exhibition of Fierce Women illustrations for the 2022 IKEA China Financial Year Launch, celebrating Swedish culture with the focus on gender equality.
To promote the contributions to society of women from Sweden and China, we created four new illustrations that premiered at the event. Ana Salopek and Helena Nemec illustrated Swedish authors Astrid Lindgren and Selma Lagerlöf, Polona Drašler illustrated the Chinese astronomer Wang Zhenyi, and Ana Lucija Šarić the Chinese educator Huixing.
Another 14 illustrations known to you from our Fierce Women deck were included in the exhibition in front of the IKEA Shenyang store, that will be open until September 15th 2021.
We are very happy for this opportunity to promote our work, to support the celebration of gender equality and the achievements of fierce women in China, and to promote Croatian and Slovenian artists whose work was included in the exhibition.
