Barber Institute, Thursday 14 February 18.30-20.30
In partnership with Vivid Projects, we’ll be screening the beautiful, award-winning film Looking for Langston (1989) by Isaac Julien, which explores poetry and homosexuality in 1920s Harlem. A delicious valentine buffet and rose wine will be served, followed by a special LGBTQ themed gallery tour exploring love and art across boundaries. All welcome.
£5 per person, booking essential, contact +44 (0)121 414 2261 or email@example.com
You can find full details of the valentine buffet on the Barber Institute's website.
Vivid Projects presents Looking for Langston as part of the Paradise Loft programme strand, bringing together key works exploring the translation of homosexual desire into a personal aesthetic. Other works to be shown include Ron Peck's Nighthawks and Jennie Livingston's Paris Is Burning, which documents the last days of the elaborate drag balls in New York.
