Annette Foster
Drag It Up Party
My Name is Sue, How Do You Do?

Arnolfini Associate Artist, Tom Marshman and Annette Foster host three days of workshops, performances, interventions and parties that play with identity, gender and costumery. Whilst Marshman unravels manly codes of etiquette, as he dolls himself up in iconic uniforms, Foster becomes a fluid gender illusionist, adopting different personas which question our cultural ideologies of sexuality and gender construction.
Linda Florence
Light Night 2009

Linda Florence has installed a new intimate collection of suspended, retro standard and table lamps in the Mezzanine Bar of The Broadway Cinema and Media Centre in Nottingham. The lights are part of Light Night Nottingham and will be installed until the 2 March. The traditional shaped lamps have been gathered from Deptford market in south London near to Florence’s studio and redesigned with ornate hand printed wallpapers and dyed braiding and tassels creating lush clusters of light.
