Join us for an artist talk with Robbie Handcock as part of his solo exhibition 'Indecent Literature'.

The talk will be followed by a screening of the film 'Pink Narcissus' (1971), directed by James Bidgood.

“Pink Narcissus' is a breathtaking and outrageous erotic poem focussing on the daydreams of a beautiful boy prostitute who, from the seclusion of his ultra-kitsch apartment, conceives a series of interlinked narcissistic fantasies populated by matadors, dancing boys, slaves and leather-clad bikers….With its highly charged hallucinogenic quality, its atmosphere of lush decadence, and its explicit erotic power, 'Pink Narcissus' is a landmark of gay cinema.”
