July 2020: What to view this month

Performance, Protest & Politics: The Art of Gilbert Baker

Performance, Protest & Politics: The Art of Gilbert Baker
While June, and many Pride celebrations, may be over you can still virtually celebrate by exploring GLBT Historical Society Museum’s exhibition on the art of Gilbert Baker. In 1978 San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker conceived a new symbol to represent the LGBTQ community: the iconic rainbow flag, first displayed at that year’s Gay Freedom Day Parade.

Toyin Ojih Odutola: Tell me a story, I don’t care if it’s true
As we keenly await the opening of Toyin Ojih Odutola’s postponed Barbican exhibition to open, you can enjoy Odutola’s virtual exhibition presented by the Jack Shainman Gallery. This exhibition explores a number of multimedia drawings on various surfaces investigating formulaic representations and how such images can be unreliable, systemic, and socially coded.

Everyday Experiments
Everyday Experiments, by SPACE10 and IKEA, asks how tomorrow’s technologies will redefine the way we live at home. Working with a range of designers from across the globe, this exhibition helps imagine new ways of living through digital experiments, proposals and prototypes.
