And Now…Grants for Irish Lesbians! Alice May Williams

16 June – 15 July 2017

Tintype is pleased to announce that Alice May Williams is our project space artist for 2017.

And Now…Grants For Irish Lesbians!, will feature and build upon Williams’ previous work On The 73, the short film she made for Tintype’s Essex Road program. On The 73 is a tale of unrequited love set on the Essex Road, told through verse and images from seminal lesbian film and tv moments of the 90s and 00s. 

Transitioning from the confessional to the communal, And Now….Grants for Irish Lesbians! looks further back into the lesser known queer histories of Essex Road and Islington. Williams’ project is to assemble an informal history of a time and a place.
