New exhibition curated by Radclyffe Hall featuring work by artists Tessa Boffin, Ingrid Pollard and Jill Posener.
Out of the clubs and into the streets, dykes have created, fought for and celebrated spaces of representation beyond the privacy of the bedroom. Hot Moment examines photographic representations that emerge from the threshold of intimacy and public life in the 1980s and 90s. The exhibition presents the work of Tessa Boffin, Ingrid Pollard, and Jill Posener – three photographers for whom lesbian identity was never a coherent category to be straightforwardly translated to image by the camera. Instead it signals a style, a politics, and an attitude of production.
