Join Void Gallery for the official opening of the Rewind Fastforward Record (RFR) installation exploring the rich history of Foyle Pride and LGBTQ+ activism in Derry at Void Gallery on Tuesday, 23rd August from 6.30 – 8.30pm. This exhibition of work forms part of their cumulative archive. The RFR initiative is aimed at engaging with LGBTQ+ community groups on a national platform to uncover queer histories and expand their retelling and relevance through artistic interpretation.
Through a series of talks, tours, workshops and personal accounts RFR will develop a body of creative responses to be presented as a touring exhibition to regional locations across the country. As part of each regional exhibition, a further series of local talks and workshops will generate new creative responses expanding the material as it tours to each location. This cumulative material will form both a historical and a contemporary archive of hidden queer histories and the current perspectives of RFR participants. RFR is an exploration of queer identity; past and present, and aims to connect us with both our history and our community.
