Curator's Talk
MARK SEALY AND KAREN MCQUAID ON SUNIL GUPTA

Thu 22 Oct

ONLINE EVENT

In partnership with The Photographers' Gallery

About the Event

Artist Sunil Gupta has been using photography as a critical practice since the 1970s. Subversive, impulsive, personal and political, Gupta's socially engaged projects have focused on such issues as family, race, migration and the complexities and taboos of sexuality and homosexual life. His work has been instrumental in raising awareness around the political realities concerning the fight for international gay rights.

At this online event, Autograph's Director Mark Sealy - who has curated the major exhibition Sunil Gupta: From Here to Eternity. A Retrospective - will be in conversation with Karen McQuaid from the Photographer's Gallery. They'll explore the themes in Gupta's work and broad career, and how his work has been inspirational to generations of photographic activists and LGBTQ+ rights campaigners.
