SHOUT 17 - QAI/CEE (Karol Radziszewski)

SHOUT 17 - QAI/CEE (Karol Radziszewski)

Internationally renowned Polish Artist Karol Radziszewski presents a rich selection of Central and Eastern European queer archive materials from the collection of the Queer Archives Institute (QAI). The QAI, established by Radziszewski in November 2015, is a non-profit artist-run organisation dedicated to research, collection, digitalisation, presentation, exhibition, analysis and artistic interpretation of queer archives, with special focus on the countries of the former Eastern Bloc. The QAI is a long-term project open to transnational collaboration with artists, activists and academic researchers. The Institute carries out a variety of activities and projects – from exhibitions, publications, lectures, and installations to performances.

The QAI/CEE exhibition also features Radziszewski’s photographs and video works, and will include an artist’s talk and documentary screening of Kiesieland on Saturday 11 November at 6pm.

On 11 November (11am – 3pm) arts collective Eastern States of Queer will host a Kilim (a decorative piece of heavy woven fabric that originated in Balkan tribes) making workshop and discussion for children and families in the Centrala Gallery space.

​Join us for the exhibition launch from 6pm on Friday 10th November.
