Simeon Barclay 'Bus2Move at The Tetley'

The Tetley, Leeds
October 22, 2019

Simeon Barclay in his first institutional solo exhibition in the North of England, will present a new body of work informed by research into dance. From the visual spectacle of contemporary dance theatre to the communal experience of the night club dance floor, the exhibition Bus2move will manifest as a series of sculptural installations combining costume, film and video, photography, lighting and sound. Barclay’s interest in dance and its many facets centres on the construction of masculinity, with particular focus on the way popular perceptions and stereotypes become defined, contested and encoded upon the dancing male body.
