The Summer of Love

The Summer of Love

Taking inspiration from the Robert Indiana exhibition, the Summer of Love is a series of events and projects that celebrates human relationships, understanding and love between people.
As well as sparking moments of pure, joyful connection, the programme will investigate the complexities of love and community: how we relate to one another and ourselves, and how we can represent love in a way that is inclusive of and compassionate to everyone.

Running from the summer solstice to the autumn equinox, different chapters exploring expansive ideas around love will unfold, expressed in many forms from temporary sculptural installations to dance and choral performance, working with artists that currently include Jason Wilsher-Mills, Thahmina Begum, Roger Hiorns, Rosanne Robertson, Jordan McKenzie and Phil Sanger.

In the Bothy Gallery, a summer-long programme made in collaboration with LGBTQIA+ communities will span film screenings, readings, workshops and pop-ups, as well as focused engagement work. At times the gallery will be used as a safe space for invited groups to explore and learn together in a supportive environment. This will be a place for sharing experiences and listening and will provide a platform for diverse representation responding to the programme themes.
