Four spoken word artists capture different experiences of navigating a city’s architecture - journeying from patriarchal, urban spaces to queer subcultures.
Chloe AyoDeji Filani, Kai-Isaiah Jamal, Rene Matić, Tanaka (AKA T.Ffuego) will each perform. The evening will take place in - and respond to - Lola Flash's powerful exhibition challenging stereotypes and gender, sexual, and racial preconceptions.
Curated by Gaby Sahhar through the queerdirect project, an LGBTQIA+ artist support network, curatorial platform and arts programme.
