ROSA KWIR PRESENTS
EVENTS PROGRAMME 2022
Tender & Masculine Group show
07.10.2022 – 09.01.2023
Tender and Masculine is Rosa Kwir’s first group show, exclusively showcasing the work of LGBTQI+ artists. The show opens on 7th October at 7pm, with a performance starting at 9pm.
The exhibition unpacks the often complex debates on masculinities but does so from a queer standpoint. By pairing the word masculine with an adjective like tender, the provocation establishes a more nuanced and gentler approach to discussing masculinity.
Exhibiting Artists: Amy Pennington, Carlos Maria Romero aka Atabey, Dagmar Bosma, El Hardwick and Orion Isaacs, Elio Mercer, Harry Hachmeister, Heather Glazzard, Jasmine Johnson, June Lam, Luca Bosani, Lucinda Purkis, Remi Graves.
