Living Beyond Limits
Mima: Oct 20th 2018
20th October 2017-3rd February 2019. To be queer is to be erased from public space and to persist, nevertheless, in making yourself heard. This exhibition queers the museum by reclaiming it as a communal and political space within which marginal voices will not be silenced. Living Beyond Limits showcases works from the Middlesbrough Collection by artists whose life or work deviate from long-held western norms around gender and sexuality. However, in this context, queerness is more than an identity marker. The focus of this show is political and activist, and it includes themes around racism, sexism and class inequalities.
