Showcasing the outcomes from a month-long collaboration exploring queer identity between poet Dean Atta and visual artist Ben Connors

Join the closing event of The Black Flamingo Open Studio to see the outcomes of poet Dean Atta and visual artist Ben Connors’ month-long studio residency at Tate Britain.

The Black Flamingo - a metaphor used within Atta’s work to explore identities of queer people of colour - has been the starting point for the collaboration, which explores queer identity through poetry and visual art.

See performances from Dean Atta, Phoenix Fagbutt and Keith Jarrett. Join the dialogue with the artists and other visitors. Explore what has been created in the studio space over the course of the collaboration. Pick up a copy of the The Black Flamingo zine, created by the artists and including submissions from the public via an open call.
