Michaela will be in conversation with writer and editor Eleanor Stanford, discussing QUEERCIRCLE’s inaugural exhibition, Let Me Hold You.
As the show draws to a close, this will be wonderful evening to experience the environment Michaela has created, rest and connect with others.
About Michaela Yearwood-Dan:
Michaela Yearwood-Dan’s work reflects on subjectivity and individual identity as forms of self-determination. Whilst her work may be underpinned by an expansive and multivalent repertoire of cultural signifiers borrowing freely from blackness, healing rituals, flora, texting, acrylic-nails, gold-hoops, carnival culture, these reference points enable her to present and privilege the variance of her own individual experience. As such, her work refuses to be framed by narrow expectations of racial or gendered notions of collective identity and history. She defamiliarizes many of those reference points in her work resisting the clichés and strictures of representation.
