CURATION

Exhibition Double Sided Sticky Tape #1 (A queer expression) Turner Contemporary: Foyle Rooms Opening night Monday 5th August / 5-8 Exhibition runs 6th-7th August / 10-6 Curated by Alex Noble In partnership with Margate Pride  Double lives, inhabited spaces, uninhabitable bodies, inhibitions run riot. Side lined and sensational, sticky, awkward, intimate, recorded and taped.  The kaleidoscopic experience of queerness, the fractals beyond fractals of LGBTQI identity and expressions that smash through stereotypes.  Stereotypes that even within a diverse community serve only to perpetuate heteronormative ideals of gendered social structures that can oppress and segregate.  The Double Sided Sticky Tape exhibition invites artist who present, document, inspire and transcend perceptions of what it is to be LGBTQI today and how they respond as artists to a lived experience and the informing of identity. Expanding audience impressions and understanding of what it is to be gay, transgender, queer, fluid, non binary and the multitude of identities that transcend labels.  The exhibition seeks to give a wider platform to visionaries and voices that are unpredictable, revealing prevalent and other sides of beauty to the usual genres of homoerotic art that have narrow parameters of physical aesthetics, genders and ideals. A physical platform for imagery that largely inhabits an on line space, rewarding artists with a larger scale to present their work through use of projectors, creating a continuous slide show, illuminating the work into a 3D space including performance and textile installation.  The exhibition focuses on film, photography, writing and textile artworks that subvert visual codes of dress and gender.  The opening event will feature live performance from Stav B, Robert George Sanders and Shiri Shah.  Exhibiting artists include Bobb Attard / James Barnett / Stav B / Elliot Clausen / Isaac Flores / Arthur Guilleminot / J Houston / Asa Johannesson / Matt Lambert / Roxy Lee / Lunatraktors / Kirsty McKenzie / Lucas Medias / Bernice Mulenga / Jesse Navarre Vos / Alex Noble / Cathal O’Brien / Carlos Pareja / Password_Yeltes / Scott Ramsay Kyle / Marval A Rex / Ted Rogers / Rosalind Russell / Marija Sabanovic / Adam Sach / Anna Sampson / Robert George Sanders / Shiri Shah / Paul Sixta / Shaun Stamp / Enzo Tonati / Joseph Wilson
