Pay What You Can

The work of our artists is valuable and our events cost money to produce, but we also want them to be as accessible as possible. Therefore, we offer you the opportunity to pay what you can for this event.

Somerset House Studios joins the 2018 Pride in London celebrations with a screening of Queertopia, a series of artist films curated by Gemma Rolls-Bentley for Daata Editions.

Queertopia is a collection of work that reviews the existence of queer communities and their spaces -- both real and mythological, memorialising those lost and building environments and landscapes to nurture new radical possibilities. The icons, monuments and geography of Queertopia present an opportunity to explore future structures of identity, intimacy and legacy. The list of artists features Holly Blakey, Rindon Johnson, Zoe Marden, Rashaad Newsome, Hannah Quinlan + Rosie Hastings, Jacolby Satterwhite and Puck Verkade.

Tickets also available on the door.
