Angels in Exile

3 Feb 2024 – 7 Apr 2024

This exhibition explores the concept of paradise and how queer communities create safe and joyful spaces. It references John Milton’s poem ‘Paradise Lost’ to question the impact of religious stories on ethics and politics, whilst drawing parallels to the historical persecution of queer people. It also looks at how queer resistance can challenge exclusion and discrimination, using celestial figures and rebel icons as sources of empowerment.

Artists: Ayman Kaake, Felix Saturn, Hannah Brontë, Jason Ebeyer, Julian Leigh May, Norton Fredericks, and Tané Andrews
