Archive Exhibition - Mixed Medium

We Get to Choose Our Families

Mon-Wed: 11-6pm; Thu 11-9pm (Late Opening); Fri-Sun 11-6pm

Organised by trans and non-binary curators this exhibition explores the idea of chosen families in response to the oppression faced by LGBTQAI+ communities.

The exhibition brings together archive materials from the Museum of Transology, works by queer artists, and makers Cassils, Cosmic Constructions, Tolu Elusadé, Rachael House, and Bernice Mulenga in dialogue with artworks by Matthew Barney, Candida Höfer, Vibeke Tandberg, and Francesca Woodman selected from the Christen Sveaas Collection.

This exhibition is a chosen family in its own right: a thoughtful selection of portraits, video, objects and stories drawn from different origins, backgrounds and experiences, set against a backdrop of queer domesticity.
