Editors Pick:

Alien Sex Club – John Walter

Camp and Furnace // until 30 November

The exhibition consists of a large-scale installation based on the shapes of cruise mazes, found in sex clubs and gay saunas. Be immersed in a multisensory world of video, live performance, maze and performance bar for drinks as you are introduced to issues around HIV with a new vocabulary for understanding and talking about it. Using the aesthetic of carnivals, this interesting and fun exhibition has a further-reaching dialogue around a difficult subject, grounded in cross-disciplinary research.

Be sure to head down to Walker Gallery, where you can see Pug Virus a sculpture designed by Walter’s to depict one of a series of 3D printed ‘virus heads’ alongside the main exhibition.
