Join us for the opening night of Lola Flash's first major solo exhibition in London.


Working at the forefront of genderqueer visual politics for more than three decades, Flash’s work challenges stereotypes and gender, sexual, and racial preconceptions.

Her art and activism are profoundly connected, fueling a life-long commitment to visibility and preserving the legacy of LGBTQI+ and communities of colour worldwide.

At the core of this exhibition is Flash’s series [sur]passing. Emphasising varying shades of skin tone, these larger-than-life portraits feature a spectrum of global diasporic figures posed against urban skylines - probing the impact of pigmentation on black identity and consciousness.
