Join the Project and artist Gwen Shockey for an evening in celebration of lesbian nightlife and community. Through photography and oral histories, Shockey’s new solo show at Amos Eno Gallery, Addresses, rediscovers sites which have long lived exclusively in the memories of women who founded and flourished in these safe spaces. Panel participants will discuss the history of bars, cafes and clubs dedicated to a lesbian clientele, past and present, and speak more broadly upon the importance of identifying and drawing awareness to this invisible history.
