Queer Artists Forum

Belfast Exposed



About The Event

Join us for the next instalment of the Queer Artist Forum, being held at Belfast Exposed.

The Forum is a platform for lens-based visual artists from the LGBTQIA+ community. Founded to provide support and address the limited provision for the needs of artists, the Queer Artist Forum is a space for discussion, peer to peer engagement, artistic development and career support.

Established in early 2023 as a response to Anthony Luvera's exhibition She / Her / Hers / Herself, the Forum is facilitated by artists Charlie Beare and Vesper MacKenzie. It meets monthly and it open to all artists who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community and work in primarily lens based media.

We are delighted to play host to the Forum and its members, for more information contact


About the facilitators:

Vesper MacKenzie is a trans artist based in Northern Ireland. Using her early influence in architecture, she explores the history and contemporary rise of fascism, control and resistance through the built environment, as representative of the entrenched power structures of their time.

Aidan Geary is originally from Dublin and, having spent many years living in London, is now based in Belfast. He is studying for an MFA in Photography at the Belfast School of Art.

His practice explores human intervention on, and interpretation of the natural landscape, and uses images of the land to examine perception and looking, politics, and identity. Aidan previously studied multimedia systems at Trinity College Dublin, and has a background in digital media and television.
