Queer They Are: Opening Reception

Community & Culture

An exhibition looking at queer womenโ€™s spaces and probing us to think about and re-imagine queer spaces as we know them.

Queer They Are is an exhibition mounted by students from the V&A/RCA History of Design MA programme looking at queer womenโ€™s spaces in London. The concept of queer spaces is often dominated by the gay male club-centric narrative which leans on sites of pleasure. While gay men have traditionally congregated in these, queer women tend to be community oriented rather than function-specific in their creation of place. Where there are queer women, there are queer spaces. Through the display of news clippings, pamphlets, photographs, and video clips, we are prompting visitors to think about and re-imagine queer spaces as we know them.

  • Opening Reception: 5 July, 6pm to 8pm
  • Public Viewing: 6 to 7 July, 10am to 6pm
