  • Andrew Black

    Autumn Residency 2018

    Andrew Black’s background is in painting, but for the past couple of years he has been working mostly with video and writing for performance. His practice aims to contribute to a shared, communally-constructed queer imaginary/futurity that parasitises the ‘straight’ everyday, incorporating diverse positionalities and contexts, and is currently focused on expanded ideas of queer identities, friendships and communities in non-metropolitan environments. Organising has an important role in his practice. Black was on the committee at Transmission in Glasgow, 2016-18, during a period of radical change within the institution.
