6.30 – 8.30pm

The NewBridge Project

Artist Phyllis Christopher focuses on her analogue printing techniques and book Dark Room San Francisco Sex and Protest, 1988-2003 for this special talk at NewBridge Books.

Based in Newcastle upon Tyne, Phyllis Christopher conducts workshops, co-facilitates a community darkroom at The NewBridge Project, and continues to document the LGBTQ+ community. Her body of work documenting lesbian visibility, sexuality and protest, Dark Room: San Francisco Sex and Protest, 1988-2002 (Book Works, 2022; available at NewBridge Books).

During this event Phyllis will be hosting a discussion about the career impact of having a book published and the importance of contributing to lesbian and queer theory. She will talk about analogue printing techniques that she has developed over the years and how they will be used in her new project, The Queer Body in Peril.

This evening will be of particular interest to traditional darkroom printers who want to look at some experimental printing techniques. Please bring your own work to share if you wish.
