Queering Connections
1st February – 3rd March 2023

This third iteration of the collaborative exhibition ‘Queering Connections’ presents two artists whose work is represented in University of Southampton/Winchester School of Art’s internationally renowned Artists’ Book Collection, started in the late 1960s: Hormazd Narielwalla and Jeremy Dixon.

Both artists work with collage as a main artistic medium, layering high art and popular culture references within their aesthetically different art works. In their work relating to identity and LGBTQ+ themes Narielwalla and Dixon draw on their personal stories and journeys as well as broader concerns relating to queer lives and histories. The exhibition draws connections between their artistic practices and the themes included in their work and invites visitors to make further queer connections.

The exhibition runs across LGBT+ History Month and is curated by Dr Shaun Cole, Associate Professor in Fashion, and co-director of the Intersectionalities: Politics – Identities – Cultures (iPIC) Research Group at Winchester School of Art.
