Focal Point Gallery is pleased to present ‘YOU ARE NOT ALONE’, a temporary public artwork commissioned specifically for Southend High Street’s railway bridge by Southend-based artist Scottee. Installed on either side of the suspended metal bridge, the commission will be visible for a half mile along the town’s main thoroughfare.
‘YOU ARE NOT ALONE’ will gather the thoughts and words of fifty LGBTQI* people, one to represent each year of decriminalisation. From this collection, two phrases will be selected to be printed on two large vinyl banners that will be installed across the railway bridge on Southend High Street.
To launch this new artwork, Focal Point Gallery and Scottee invite you to a queer performance knees up starring some of the top radical artists of LGBTQIA* culture in the UK. Performers include:
Anti-drag, trans*noise and pancakes are intertwined with queer hair do’s and short performances. This event is open to everyone aged over 18.
Straight allies, local weirdos and friends of Dorothy are encouraged to attend.
Performers to be confirmed shortly.
