Through a combination of first-hand accounts and archival material, the display considers the role of memory in forming a queerer archive, while encouraging discussions around the regeneration of Birmingham’s LGBTQ+ spaces.
Ryan Kearney (b. 1995, Birmingham) is an independent curator and researcher based in London. His on-going research centres on participatory and socially engaged curatorial practices, as well as how the displaying of queer archival histories can facilitate intergenerational discussions.
