FOLLOWING THE SUCCESS OF ‘GLF AT 50; THE ART OF PROTEST’, ANDREW LUMSDEN AND DAN DE LA MOTTE COLLABORATE ONCE AGAIN TO BRING US ‘FRIENDSHIP CIRCLES’
FRIENDSHIP CIRCLES is a new series of works made by original GLF activist, artist, journalist, writer and speaker ANDREW LUMSDEN. It celebrates friends and friendships in all areas and aspects of his life and work.
The works are of Andrew's friends, and their friends, made over Lockdown(s) and inspired by Andrew's more, er, psychedelic pursuits from 50 years ago.
The exhibition will also feature a wrap-around festival of events, led by the artists and activists that feature in Andrew’s works, such as JIM MACSWEENEY of GAYS THE WORD Bookshop and PETER TATCHELL.
Also featuring the works SOCIAL! (DISTANCING) by LILY CHEETAH
The exhibition is curated by DAN DE LA MOTTE. Previous work as a curator includes BLOOLIPS AND RADICAL DRAG (2019) and GLF AT 50; THE ART OF PROTEST (2020 and Autumn 2021)
PLATFORM SOUTHWARK is a ‘Meanwhile’ Arts Space by The Cut. One of the few pre-war buildings in the area, it is ear-marked for demolition soon.
