The last Tate Late was about multiculturalism and how diverse the population is across London.
Despite June being LGBT+ Pride month and London Pride officially being over on 9th July, Tate decided to a hosts an overly Queer Late to prolong the festivities.
All descriptions are provided by Uniqlo and I’m merely picturing the highlights/activities on offer.
Step in to the ring with artist @jessiemclaugh to chat all the things you love about your queer body. Flex, dance, sway, move, or just lie in the ring and listen to a queer love song.
WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD?
Are you brave enough to change the world? Bring optimism and courage, follow the signs and step into the unknown with artist and pessimist Scottee.
Cut, stick and piece together collages using queer materials from Tate Library and Archive to create your own queer history.
TATE EXCHANGE: GENDER TALKS
2017’s ‘Summer School’ used art to support understanding what gender is through queer theory, feminism, trans, intersex, and non-binary genders. Explore how Summer School evolved and see presentations by artists Travis Alabanza and Linda Stupart plus a special performance by acclaimed drag artist Victoria Sin.
I didn’t manage to capture the rest of the exhibition mainly due to me wanting to absorbs the information rather than taking pictures of it…
Plus we also spent way too long relaxing a room showcasing a porn video made by feminists while arguing where to eat for dinner.
Until Next Time,
~I never knew a drag act making a cheese sandwich would be soo funny~
