Queertopia

Sat 23 Mar

Curated for Daata Editions by Gemma Rolls-Bentley
Features artists: Holly Blakey, Rindon Johnson, Zoe Marden, Rashaad Newsome, Hannah Quinlan & Rosie Hastings, Jacolby Satterwhite and Puck Verkade.

The artists included in Queertopia straddle London and New York, two cities at a pivotal moment in their queer history. In 2017 the UK's most historic cultural institutions marked the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of male homosexuality in England and Wales by hosting exhibitions and projects that explored the LGBTQ+ experience.

In 2019 New York City marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising by staging the city's largest pride celebrations to date, the reverberations of which will be felt around the world.

These anniversaries provide an opportunity to reflect on a 50 year period of change, and in some places rapid progress, to consider the world before these landmark moments and perhaps most importantly, to engage with queer siblings around the world that still fight the same wars our queer icons waged generations ago that we tricked ourselves into believing had been won forever.
