This weekend-long celebration is inspired by Susan Sontag’s prophetic essay “Notes on Camp’. The exhibition draws on the key concepts of unabashed enjoyment, the anti-serious, and stylization. You can expect the unexpected (and over 20 fresh works of art), as well as performances, food & drink, and fun things to do.
While camp may seem like all fun and games, it has deep roots in marginalised communities. It is a tool for resistance used by queer and Black communities for generations. You can see our Reading List HERE to learn more about the definition of camp, as well as it's history.
