Art Talks with Art Fund: Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings

3 November 2017

1pm - 2pm
Video piece of UK gay bar

Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings spent nine months in 2016 making UK Gay Bar Directory. The artwork is a filmed archive featuring footage from more than 170 gay bars across 13 cities in the UK. This includes Liverpool, London, Manchester and Newcastle. They were inspired to make it by the closure of many historic and popular LGBT+ venues in London due to increasing rents and gentrification.

During this talk, the artists will discuss further their motivations for making UK Gay Bar Directory as well as offer insights into their broader practice.

Art Talks with Art Fund, a national programme of artist talks around contemporary art in museums across the UK.
