A Moveable Feast?

A Recoverist Month event

Recoverist = recovery + activist

A Moveable Feast? sees artist Jez Dolan working with Sober Gay Socials members to explore alternative, queer sober social provision for LGBTQ+ people in recovery from substance use.

Whilst queer culture can be unashamedly hedonistic, this new commission for Recoverist Month blows the roof off convention and dreams big the possibilities for much-needed sober spaces within Manchester's LGBTQ+ community.

Come and take a seat at the table at this performative meal where queer recoverists invite the public to share some food and time to explore issues and ideas around queer recovery.

Part of Whitworth Art Gallery's Thursday Lates series.

Jez Dolan is an artist living and working in Manchester, UK. His practice underlines the intersections between queerness, sexuality, identity and memory. He works across multiple platforms including drawing, performance, printmaking and most recently painting.

Jez’s work is held in a number of public and private collections internationally including the British Museum, Bury Art Museum, the (UK) Government Art Collection, the Leslie Lohman Museum NYC, the Schwules Museum Berlin, the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool and others.
