Curation

Queer(ing) Space

Queer(ing) Space was an interactive exhibition and events programme that explored the myriad ways in which queer space – both communal and individual - is created, exploited consumed and celebrated. 

 

The exhibition was curated from an open call, which asked artists and performers to answer the question, what is queer space? The resulting exhibition examined the spaces that make us, the ones that break us and the sanctuaries we build for ourselves for both pleasure and protection. The project asks how our environments – from clubs to bus stops, houses to dance floors – shape us, and what is our responsibility in continuing to shape them.
