This exhibition was due to take place during Glasgow International 2020, 23 April – 10 May, which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. The festival will be re-staged in 2021 with dates to be announced.
Glasgow Women’s Library presents new work by photographer, media artist and researcher Ingrid Pollard. Throughout her career, Pollard, who was born in Guyana and now lives and works in London, has attended closely to histories of representation and uncontested social constructs in order to, as she puts it, ‘bring to life what we always knew was there’.
Following a residency in 2019, Pollard has been developing new work in response to the Lesbian Archive and Information Centre, part of the library’s collections. Together, the archive and Pollard’s multi-layered response provide a vital challenge to the ongoing erasure and marginalisation of LGBTQ+ culture and history within heritage institutions and wider society.
