Catalyst Arts – Belfast, Northern Ireland

Preview on Thursday 14th July 7-10pm

This exhibition will explore ways in which artists today continue to challenge, subvert, or deconstruct hegemonic notions of heteronormative identity in contemporary visual culture.

Through video, photography, drawing, painting, and installation, the work on display will offer an eclectic and dynamic representation of ‘other’ in today’s society.

There will also be a series of glorious accompanying events running alongside the show. Please email the gallery at catalystarts@gmail.com to reserve a place for any of the following:
