The Art House in Wakefield welcomes Whiskey Chow, a London-based artist, Chinese drag king, and RCA Tutor who brings together a group of artists from our MA Sculpture exploring what ‘Queer spirit’ means in artistic practice today.

Living in different timelines of LGBTQIA+ movements, and constantly negotiating with complex power dynamics from intersectional and cross-cultural perspectives, Queer artists often invent new visual approaches to address their desires and concerns.

SOFT & HARD investigates how new generations of Queer artists create space for themselves and their community through art that goes beyond vanity, hypersexuality and gender performativity.

The exhibition features recent RCA graduate artists Elena Hoskyns-Abrahall, Emma Sheehy, Hongmin An, Jim Rampage, Leonie Cameron, Net Warner, Sean Synnuck, Sojung Park, Yuqing Lin, Candice Dehnavi, Maya Erin Masuda, Theresa Weber, Rose Arbuthnott and Whiskey Chow.
