We have been invited to work with Book Works to organise a book fair to run alongside Simon Grennan's exhibition and book launch at Chetham’s Library in Manchester on Saturday the 13th of October. Simon's book ‘Drawing in Drag by Marie Duval' is based on Victorian illustrator, Marie Duval, who made work under a male pseudonym. Keen to explore the themes of Simon's book Book Works have called
on us to put together a Strange Perfume event, in all our queer glory!
Chetham’s Library is the oldest free public library in the English speaking world and has been designated as one of national and international importance, having begun acquiring books in August 1655, and adding to its collections ever since.
11am - 1.30pm LESBIAN SEMIOTICS (drop-in studio)
WITH JADE SWEETING
The new screenprint, ‘Key Study 1’ marks the start of their new project in response to Hal Fischer’s photographic study Gay Semiotics
in 1977 and the 1992 documentary Framing Lesbian Fashion by Karen Everett. The duo intend to use a method of analysis of dress codes and visual characteristics within lesbian communities and to explore how these might
act as signifiers, that constitute a ‘lesbian semiotics’.
If you’d like to get in touch with them about
the project, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
2pm - 4pm FILL YOUR BOWL:
QUEER COMICS & ZINES
WITH CHERRY STYLES
Join artists Brigid Elva and Cherry Styles for
a hands-on zine workshop. Make your own zine or comic to take away with little inspiration from some of Salford Zine Library’s favourite queer titles. Brigid Elva is an artist and cartoonist living and working in the UK. Her work has appeared throughout comics anthologies and print. Cherry Styles is the artist and publisher
at the helm of Synchronise Witches Press, now based in Huddersfield. She regularly leads workshops exploring the creative and political implications of self-publishing.
