The  QUEER ART (ISTS) NOW  show is coming to London this Thursday (12 October) and I am very proud to say that Moonlight, one of the photographs part of the ongoing project "Boy In Amber, a tale of love and death and good and evil", will be part of it. 

The show - put together by Andrew Ellerby of And What? Queer Arts Festival and Richard Dodwell of the queer independent press Pilot Press - will feature over 50 artists, performers, writers and makers in a salon-style exhibition, offering a contemporary view on queer art practice in the United Kingdom and, according to Dodwell, "wants to be an unofficial counterpart to the Tate Britain’s Queer British Art show" happened few months ago.

The exhibition will take place from Friday 13 till Sunday 15 October at ARCHIVE GALLERY in the light and spacious vaults of the former Hackney archives, near Haggerston Overground. There will be a private view on 12 October from 6pm open to anyone. I hope I'll see you there!

ELLIE ASKED ME...

A few weeks ago I got interviewed by CEN8a community interest company based at Goldsmiths University. It's an interesting project that gets the students involved in the production of a monthly newsletter that goes out to a couple hundred people at Goldsmiths. 

My interview is part of a column called 'Ellie Asks' that features interviews with creative industry professionals about how they got to where they are now and how the students could do the same. 

The interviewer, Layla, saw my photograph WING at the National Portrait Gallery when the Taylor Wessing Prize was on show and got in touch to aske me if I wanted to be featured in the column. You can read the interview HERE.
