Simeon Barclay: Bus2move at The Tetley, 27 October 2018 — 3 February 2019 Entrance is free

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 at The Tetley in Leeds 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.
