Hannah Brontë: Sunday’s Child


Hannah Brontë: Sunday’s Child

24 May 2024 – 29 Sep 2024

Playing with the 19th Century childhood nursery rhyme that describes a child born on Sunday to be good and gay, Hannah Brontë’s exhibition Sunday’s Child is an exploration of Queer Joy. Through Queerification of a western heteronormative family structure, Brontë allows us to expand our lineage to those that we call chosen family. Photographed with film, amongst the backdrop of places in nature that nurture and protect the protagonists, Brontë asks us to see Queer Joy in all its tender glory.
