Did You See Me Coming?

Article Thumbnail

'Did You See Me Coming' is the opening exhibtion at no format Gallery's new space at Deptford Foundry.

These recent  paintings use processes of layering to create complex narratives. Their imagery roams across recent decades of queer experience. They take in sources as varied as gay home movies from 1950s America, the reality TV show ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’, footage of the show’s creator RuPaul in bohemian 1980s Manhattan, current Youtube video blogs created by young queer Londoners, and the artist’s own private photograph and film archives.

The works examine the contingent and fluid nature of queer experience, and the ways in which its foundations continually re-adjust to changing social conditions. They suggest that our ongoing reshaping of identity is enriched by the handing on of intergenerational knowledge, through the recounting of personal trajectories, domestic lives and political struggles.

'Bootylicious' has been chosen for the Emerald Winter Pride Art Awards

Simon Tarrant, Director of the Emerald Winter Pride Art Awards said, "Winter Pride's latest art competition was inspired by the 50th anniversary celebrations of the 1967 Sexual Offences Act that decriminalised homosexuality. Responding to our theme, Beyond the Binaries, we received over 700 entries from around the world and 17 Finalists have been selected. Artists have really risen to the challenge to create work that stimulates dialogue about modern day issues - not just of gender, identity and sexuality - but of race, religion and politics. The resulting exhibition is both profound and thought provoking, a show not to be missed."

Held in conjunction with The House of St Barnabas' not-for-profit visual arts programme The Collective, proceeds from the sales of all artwork goes towards The House of St Barnabas' Employment Academy, supporting people affected by homelessness into lasting paid work.

The exhibition runs from 26 January - 6 June at The House of St Barnabas. To visit please book on to their monthly art tour: http://bitly.com/HoSBTickets

A touring exhibition of the 2018 Winter Pride Art Awards will take place from 9 June to 30 July at Quay Arts, Newport, Isle of Wight in partnership with Isle of Wight Pride, who recently won the bid to host UK Pride 2018

October 24-28.
Opening: Tuesday October 24, 6-8 PM

Artist Talk and Closing Event: Saturday, October 28, 2-4 PM

On the net four young gay men talk about the difficult terrain they have crossed to get to this point, sharing their struggles with school, bullying, racism, loneliness and prejudice, turning over current questions of identity and gender politics, the bonds and betrayals of friendship and their first thrilling, disappointing and troubling experiences of love. Over a year of broadcasts and Instagram streams and intense and supportive friendship, they experiment with multiple self-images and potential future trajectories, broadcasting in the process to a large online following.

Film Collaboration with Min-Wei Ting

Article Thumbnail

I am delighted to announnce that Min-Wei Ting and I will be showing a new collaborative film at Sheffield Instiute of the Arts, as part of 'In the Open', a multi-disciplinary exhibition held over several venues, opening on September 6 2017.

For this proposal we shall visit Bukit Brown, the ancient Chinese cemetery in Singapore, collaborating as painter and filmmaker, Singaporean and British. A new relief road has been carved through the rain forest, its non-traversable cutting cleaving in two the former cemetery’s sectors. Entering any rainforest space in Singapore is always to cross a boundary, to abruptly slip out of a cityscape that has been constructed on human exceptionalism into a world in which that exceptionalism is disrupted.
