Collect:if Presents: Gaysian Superheroes

September 30, 2017 @ 2:45 pm - 4:05 pm

Free – £8

A focus on the work of two British-South Asian queer women filmmakers across different generations. Activist and director Pratibha Parmar’s work centres on gender, race, and LGBT issues. Her groundbreaking Khush (1991), for instance, portrays lesbian women and gay men in India and the Indian diaspora discussing acceptance and embracing of their sexuality. We explore Pratibha’s prolific output alongside that of emerging London-based artist Seema Mattu, who uses digital media to present an awareness of the overlooked ethnic self in regards to various degrees of minoritisation.

We are delighted Seema will join us to discuss her work. Curated and hosted by Nyla Ahmad, who researches South Asian identity in comics. In partnership with Collect:if, Glasgow Women’s Library’s women of colour collective.

ACCESS: Level access at entrance of CCA with Cinema space on ground floor. Accessible toilets available. English and Urdu languages with English captions. BSL interpretation for event. Hearing loop.

Ticket prices on a sliding scale according to your circumstances. Choose between FREE, £2, £4, £6, or £8 (prices include CCA booking fee) according to what you can afford. See our ticketing information for more details.
