SQIFF curates a screening as part of Glasgow School of Art’s Degree Show programme, Dress Rehearsal. Portraits of Artists as Young Men (& Women & Other) takes a look at the earlier, formative days of queer artists who have gone on to make significant bodies of work. Featuring documentation and experimental meanderings by and/or about photographer Ajamu X, circus performer Jennifer Miller, and filmmakers Thomas Allen Harris and Barbara Hammer, amongst others. Common themes emerge of hitting back against oppression and searching for identity through the creative process.

This event is free and unticketed. Just come along on the night.

ACCESS

Films are in the English language with English language captions.

Films are experimental so some are quite visual-based but there is a relatively good amount of explanatory dialogue for blind and partially sighted audiences. Large print versions of handouts available.

The Art School has good access for wheelchair users. Click here for more details on venue access.
