Small Town Boy by Liz Bradshaw is a personal reflection on 80s and 90s popular and queer culture, and what it has to say to us as we go through our second pandemic. The exhibition is the culmination of a five-year body of temporary and site specific artworks that responded to place and cultural history, and incorporates reflections on architecture and the body, including Oxford Street and the Wall.  

The work takes the history, scale and visual elements of location to create new narratives, make visible secret histories and generate alternative meanings.  

Through large-scale drawings and sculpture it takes intimate details from the built environment, and its cultural meanings for our communities, and sets it to the echo of Bronski Beat. 

The exhibition is open Monday - Saturday 10am-5pm.
