BBZ x Tate Exchange


Experience a multi-media, multi-sensory programme exploring the creativity of queer, trans and non-binary black artists and collectives

BBZ x TATE EXCHANGE is an exploration of the duality of the queer, trans and non-binary black identity in the UK. Explore how DIY cultures and cloud communities have helped these groups to thrive through conversation, workshops and performance.

  • Drop in to a designated co-working and library space to browse a collection of zines and literature dedicated to QTPOC (Queer and Trans People of Colour) empowerment and movements all over the world, and join a Show and Tell or Zine Exchange to find out about new and existing zines from the community.
  • Join a discussion on Blaq Transmission or Parents of QTPOC in The Cotch, a safe space for intimate and honest conversation and see BBZ TV, a video essay on the black queer condition.
  • Sit back in the barber chair and hear an interactive soundpiece that explores intimate expressions of queer black folk in Tenderheaded, and see the barber shop installation activated by a performance.
  • Interact with The Server, a digital installation spotlighting the importance of the digital age and how it has strengthened the QTPOC communities off and online – and stay late for BBZ DJs on Saturday.

BBZ is a collective of womxn of colour spotlighting some of the world's emerging queer black artists in immersive environments.
