Planet 2028 is an LGBT+-centric event which considers the shaping of queer futures through digital media and performance. This will be TOMBOY’s first public event, held in mid July at LUX, London. Viewers can expect an impactive and fabulous night of film, performance and illustration celebrating intersectional LGBT+ experiences.
TOMBOY is an art initiative which sparks minority discourse through video, performance and events. They focus particularly on digital media as a convo-filter and create physical/digital space(s) to nourish creative practices. They also recognise the importance in shifting art traffic from London to non-London within the UK, and currently use the online realm to champion artists/pratices of colour, review ethnic cuisine and highlight current minority affairs (as a minimum) through digital channels.
Part One: A collection of works by illustrator, Catherine Paiano, which highlight past + present representations of the LGBT+ community and raise questions about the future of our discourse.
Part Two: A reel of videos from a spectrum of artists/filmmakers, the majority of which pertain to the lived experience of POC LGBT+ persons.
Part Three: An interactive performance by Sandy Bhamra, debuting a character who is one personification of their DJing under the name Sabhera. The actions performed will draw connections between their practice as a DJ and their practice as someone with a memory and a body that exists: They will, as this character, perform, or lead, an open, participatory medley through their past “best-of” moments so far as a cultural practitioner-cum-artist.
