Join us for a Tuesday Walkthrough – a gallery tour where artists, experts, researchers and academics give short talks in their field of expertise relating to the concepts explored in our exhibition.

This walkthrough will explore our current exhibition Paul Mpagi Sepuya: Exposure - a major monographic exhibition by the Los Angeles-based artist. Paul Mpagi Sepuya is best known for his intimate studio portraits that explore the relationships between camera, subject and viewer. The exhibition is the first institutional presentation of Sepuya’s work in the UK, bringing together more than 40 works across almost 400 square metres of gallery space.

In this walkthrough, local curator Jazz Swali will consider how space in various configurations functions throughout Sepuya’s work. Examining the studio at the centre of the exhibition, we will look to see it as a sanctuary for queer intimacy and a theatre for play. We will also engage with the transition of the images being created in a private format to a public exposure.
