People who have saved this event:


FRONTLEFT - Making Public is a multi-disciplinary art exhibition intent on capturing the essence of the feminist, sex-positive queer techno.


FRONTLEFT - Making Public is a collaborative, multi-disciplinary show exploring the
transformative qualities of the femme, sex-positive queer techno movement.
The exhibition is the culmination of over a year of auto-ethnographic research and
experimentation, conducted through painting practice, performances and events. Notably, a
dance piece was commissioned by the V&A for their Friday Late event in Hackney Wick in
October 2019.
In the context of the exhibition, on the 13 December we are hosting the ‘Raving in Crisis’
roundtable. The panel includes members of some of Europe’s leading queer techno collectives,
who will discuss the possibilities of rave as a place for political activism, artistic experimentation
and exploration.
The roundtable will be followed by a closing party during which situated performances will take
place in the gallery space, and finish with a live ambient DJ set.


What started as the result of a personal journey, FRONTLEFT has morphed into a multi-
disciplinary art research project which now includes other queer artists who share similar

experiences of the scene. The collaborative endeavour combines and explores the intersection
across Painting, Performance and Visual Arts.
The aim of the project is to harness and showcase the creative force of the queer techno scene,
whilst creating opportunities for engagement with different audiences in the gallery context.
