A cum-temporary performance club night at the provocative crossroads of fetish and camp
HARD CAMP is a pop-up exhibition, fashion show, performance art event and club night with live music, DJs and dance. The exhibition will include live art performances and artworks installed in different locations of the venue. The show aims to fuse and intertwine the two apparently opposite aesthetics – typically associated with queer culture: the leather and dark fetish with the more allegedly ‘effeminate’ colour-infused camp. The exhibition includes a variety of media and art practitioners from London and abroad who seek to create a dialogue between these two aesthetic forms.
Curated by Giulia Casalini, in collaboration with Ana Grahovac and Diana Georgiou.
