Queering Connections: Narielwalla // Dixon

1st February—3rd March 2023

The Winchester Gallery

This third iteration of the collaborative exhibition project ‘Queering Connections’ presents two artists whose work is represented in University of Southampton/Winchester School of Art’s internationally renowned Artists’ Book Collection, started in the late 1960s: Hormazd Narielwalla and Jeremy Dixon.

Both Narielwalla and Dixon work with collage as a main artistic medium, layering high art and popular culture references within their aesthetically different art works. In their work relating to identity and LGBTQ+ themes both artists draw on their personal stories and journeys as well as broader concerns relating to queer lives and histories. Dixon’s and Narielwalla’s works investigate place and space, considering where they have each lived and worked.  They have also created works inspired by queer icons and musicians, such as David Bowie, Klaus Nomi Madonna, and Kate Bush. The exhibition draws connections between their artistic practices and the themes included in their work and invites visitors to make further queer connections.

The exhibition runs across LGBT+ History Month and is curated by Dr Shaun Cole, Associate Professor in Fashion, and co-director of the Intersectionalities: Politics – Identities – Cultures (iPIC) Research Group at Winchester School of Art.

Open until 3 March, Tuesday – Friday 12:00 – 17:00
