Yes, I am musical picks up its rhythm from a quaintly coded 1950s question used to identify homosexual men – ‘Are you musical?’ In this exhibition, Troy-Anthony Baylis carries forward queer culture and experience by gently and humorously prodding at language and visual culture through the resonances of popular music. The exhibition brings together three bodies of work: a major new piece in his Glomesh and ‘faux-mesh’ Postcard series; a series of small-scale Immediacy Paintings of inscriptions in paint; and his Anita Bryant Monuments collages that subvert anti-gay hate speech.
Hugo Michell Gallery presents work by Troy-Anthony Baylis as part of Tarnanthi 2021.
Opening night: Wednesday 6th October.
