For the 2019 London Pride show I wanted to show the diversity of work being made in the UK. To that end I have asked established as well as younger artists to contribute, including artists across the LGBTQ+ family. This show marks the first time we have exhibited a trans artist and a gender queer artist. The artists' body of works represents a reflection of themselves as well as their practice. This exhibition is largely photo based.
Adam Wilson Holmes and Richard Sawdon Smith turn their camera on themselves while Emli Bendixen focuses on her own and other LGBTQ+ families. Gemma Marmalade uses her camera in the documentation of conceptual projects and we will also include documentation of the two live performances (at the opening) by Thierry Alexandre and Teo Robinson. Hannah Honeywill’s body of sculpture sees everyday objects queered. All the artists speak of their own diverse experiences in the universal language of art. Come join us in the conversation.
