Holly Revell Archive Launch
Holly Revell is a documenter, photographer and artist, with a keen eye for collaborating with queer artists. Her work has evolved from working alongside performers with her participatory installations to turning her camera on to those who inspire her.
Holly Revell’s archive preserves photographic and video documentation of London-based queer performance, promotional imagery and portraits of some of its makers, including Nando Messias, Lavinia Co-Op, David Hoyle, Jonny Woo, Ginger Johnson and many more. It also contains earlier works such as nudes made with adult performers Ashley Ryder and Mouse, images made in her infamous ‘Darkroom’ installations, the series ‘Transformations’, and her photo book ‘David Hoyle Parallel Universe’. It dates back to 2008 and will continue to grow and evolve, encompassing just a fraction of the brilliant and important work that is currently being made within the LGBTQ+ community, seen through Holly’s lens.
Holly Revell’s archive is now available for all to use as part of the LGBTQ+ collections at Bishopsgate Institute, and we invite you to join us in celebrating her work at this special launch event. There will be an opportunity to view archive materials, as well as hear short talks from Scottee and Nando Messias.
Bishopsgate Institute is home to one of the UK’s most comprehensive and accessible archives documenting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) histories. We started collecting LGBTQ+ materials in 2011, as part of our commitment to recording hidden histories and to preserving and sharing the history of protest and radicalism.
Drinks will be available to purchase from the pop-up bar.

7pm – 9pm
