The Art of Being Queer
The Art of Being Queer Exhibition explores and celebrates queer artists and their work from around the globe. It provides an identity experience through which we assimilate the ongoing fight for queer representation not only in the art industry, but in mainstream media as a whole. This exhibition is curated by The Art of Being Queer, a growing organisation and podcast that highlights the censorship queer artists of all mediums face every day, and provides a platform on which these artists can showcase their work that is otherwise underrepresented, rejected, or hidden altogether.
Screening of video performance Hypnôsee Bouffon. You can find more information here.

Tales, Mimicries & Mythologies
Group Exhibition at the Stanley Picker Gallery with Joshua Evan & Liberty Antonia Sadler
Mythologies of mass and digital broadcasting media. Tales emoting uncontrolled responses to political landscapes. Tragicomic mimicries of our topsy turvy times. Power in unity and solidarity
Tales, mimicries and mythologies is an exhibition uniting three artists from diverse backgrounds with distinct voices, in their efforts to make sense of the UK’s dramatic departure from the EU. The starting point of this exhibition has been the way in which Katrin Plavčak reflects the current political affairs shaping the future of the UK, through her works in ‘Haus der Lose / House of Lots’.
How do we process the emotional impact of such a gigantic shift? What is fact and what is fiction in the arena of the media broadcasting Brexit? How do we maintain order as life as we know it is coming apart at the seams?
Private View of the exhibition will take place on Wednesday the 13th of February 2019, from 5 to 8 pm.
