An exhibition of art, writing and performance made in consultation with sex workers.

About

From 23 May 2018 until 2 June 2018 Crossbones Garden will host Outside, an exhibition of sculptures and performances with a free accompanying publication. Outside connects the Crossbones’ history to issues facing contemporary sex worker communities. 

Crossbones Garden marks the site in south London where 15,000 people, were buried between the 12th century and 1857. Many of them were sex workers, who were denied consecrated burial despite sex work being licensed by the Bishop of Winchester.
Six newly commissioned sculptures will be installed throughout the garden, each produced by an artist in response to a one-hour conversation with a sex worker. 

The opening event featuring performances and the publication launch will take place on 23 May from 4:30-6:45pm in Crossbones Garden and will be immediately followed by Crossbones’ monthly Vigil for the Outcast.
