About Hysterical Collective

Hysterical Collective are the organisers of the charity art exhibition and cultural programme - Hysterical, which takes place in March each year. Co-founded and curated by Eliza Hatch of Cheer Up Luv and Bee Illustrates, Hysterical is a queer and feminist-led exhibition and event showcase; centred around community, collaboration, and activism. The exhibition facilitates a space to celebrate the innovative and subversive work of women and marginalised creatives who use their practice as a form of protest; showcasing work from underrepresented artists.

The annual event platforms many women and non-binary artists reclaiming the term ‘hysterical’, and is an ever-growing cohort of creatives using their practice to call for change. In 2022 Bee Illustrates and Eliza Hatch teamed up to create and curate Hysterical, following their debut’s massive success, Hysterical returned in 2023 – described by the Evening Standard as ‘an intimate and cathartic exploration of misogyny.’
