Ming de Nasty
12th January – 14th April
Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery & Theatre Severn
The exhibition features archive photographs collected from participants and new portraits by Ming de Nasty. The photographs were curated from workshops that took place in Shropshire with LGBT+ older individuals during 2023.
SEE ME is curated from a new heritage and photography project that explores and celebrates older LGBT+ identity. Participants have shared photographs, from their own albums and collections, told stories and recalled memories which speak of identity and representation. Workshops have taken place in the county led by artist Ming de Nasty and GRAIN Projects.
As an important legacy, work from the project will feature in a publication and will be included in a new LGBT+ archive at Shropshire Archive Service.
Exhibitions as part of this project will also take place at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury Library and The Hive, Shrewsbury (during the LGBT+ History Festival).
