Discussion Forum: Queer Reading Group

BOOK NOW

Join Grand Union’s Associate Research Curator Sean Elder in this reading group reflecting on texts concerned with intimacy and queer methods.

This event has been created as part of Jamie Crewe’s exhibition Solidarity & Love, alongside a sister show at Grand Union, Birmingham titled Love & Solidarity.

Taking inspiration from Radclyffe Hall’s novel The Well of Loneliness (1928), the exhibitions address the provocations of the book, which has had a lasting impact on generations of queer, lesbian, and transgender people.

Through a combination of video, sculpture and text, Crewe touches on themes of heartbreak, experiences of transphobia, LGBTQIA+ solidarity and conflict, as well as exploring the legacy of the novel itself.
