Queer people and allies are invited to an artist talk/discussion by G K Field about their drag persona Mister Frank. They will talk about URL vs IRL Queer spaces, their drag influences, and their use of popular music as a tool to explore notions of romantic love. There will be a Q&A with the artist at the end of the talk.

G K Field is a queer nonbinary artist living and working in Reading. They run an artist-led gallery space Garage Gallery 62 offering free space to explore and experiment. They are a member of Double Okay (dream queer and trans artist trio) and co founder of STASH (East Reading art collective). Within their work they explore the idea of ‘place’ landscapes that can be occupied by an imagined body. Incorporating painting, projection and performance. A drag alter ego Mister Frank occupies these imagined and inner landscapes in interdisciplinary performances. Mister Frank is on an exploration of romantic love in these landscapes, music can sometimes be an initial way to explore the feelings and stories attached to romantic love. 
This webinar is part of the Emerging Voices project, which was commissioned by the Rising Sun Arts Centre with funding from Arts Council’s Cultural Recovery Grant. This project is curated by Ollie Musson. Emerging Voices seeks to bring together a curator in the early stages of their career with a more established artist and a community group and support the creation of an artistic work which will initially be expressed online but will move from having a digital manifestation to a presence in the physical world as the project develops.
