Join SHOUT Festival and Recent Activity for a evening of screenings and discussions as part of their Queering the Archive season.
The first event in the series features a screening of Sandi Hughes’ Rewind Fast Forward, an archive of LGBTQ and BAME communities in Liverpool from 1970s to present. The selected films cast a light on often unread histories, mundane occurrences which highlight past queer experiences and raise questions as to how these might relate to a contemporary audience. Hughes is currently in the process of digitising and uploading her archive to its own dedicated website.
The screening is followed by a panel discussion with Hughes, artist Laura Hudson, curator Ryan Kearney and artist Tom Worsfold, whose solo exhibition Felt Tip at Recent Activity forms the setting of the event. All films have been selected by Ryan Kearney.
