Socially Engaged Art Salon launches Queer Heterotopias zine

Rachel Badham September 19, 2021

SEAS (Socially Engaged Art Salon – an artists’ led organisation that promotes social art and artists from underrepresented sectors ) has launched its Queer Heterotopias zine to complement its August exhibition at The Ledward Centre in Brighton. Exploring the notion of Brighton as a “heterotopian city…where non-normative and even transgressive behaviour is rife”, the zine showcases some of the works from the exhibition as well new and unseen material, and can be purchased online

The exhibition was produced by SEAS Brighton in collaboration with The LGBTQ+ Centre New York and the Preus Museum (Norway) to celebrates queer spaces in Brighton and take visitors on a tour of past and present heterotopias. As well as seeing works from the exhibition in the SEAS zine, art pieces can be viewed online, and the exhibition will be running in The Ledward Centre until September 30. 

As SEAS is expanding, it now has an opportunity for a Treasurer. Applicants do not need to be artists themselves, but are required to have an “understanding of the arts and the positive impact it has on society”. It is preferred that applicants have experience in either finance, the commercial business sector or have a background in working for arts organisations.
