Now, Where are We?
29th June – 9th July 2017
AndroTechne is a group of emerging artists who will present an exhibition in central London this summer to reflect upon the UK’s social history, as part of commemorative events to mark the 50th anniversary of the decriminalisation of relationships between men.
Curated by international artist Michael Petry, “Now, where are we?” opens at the Strand Gallery on 27 June, and will feature works in a range of media, artists’ talks, discussions, and events.
AndroTechne are creating new work for the show and have invited a small group of fellow artists to submit ‘challenging, surprising, and not previously exhibited’ work to illustrate their own responses to the question posed by the exhibition’s title. As well as examining the artists’ personal experiences of the decades following the Wolfenden Report, the exhibition strives to encourage cultural reflection.
Talks Event – Friday 30th June 2017, from 18:30 to 21.00, featuring presentations by and discussions with Jonathan Cooper OBE, Professor Richard Sawdon Smith, Sunil Gupta, Santiago Echeverry.
