An evening of live music and poetry, set amongst an exhibition from a range of UK Artists, hosted by Bristol-based jazz-pop songwriter, poet and performer, Freddie Lewis. Inspired by their upcoming music and poetry release, Freddie has curated a collection of pale pink works of art.

The exhibition follows the meaning held within Freddie's June release 'Bell Jar / The Gallery' which looks at the comfort within and the letting go of structure; the imagining of something more. The exploration of pale pink hints toward Freddie’s ongoing relationship with gender and gender theory, and both supports and opposes the question which fuels the work. Through the manifestation of pale pink as a symbol of femininity and physical curation of the structural metaphor of ‘The Gallery’, Freddie observes the ways in which society is shifting and asks, ‘when dismantling of the structure, (how) do we move beyond using it to do so?’.

In ‘The Gallery’, Freddie writes:

‘We become so involuted that to observe that painting without precedent might be all we have left of candour. I'm stood with one foot in each partition so my body knows neither. I'm writing the outside in but vocabulary fails me at the threshold. I'm holding words under my tongue that haven't been written yet. The framed and the otherwise denounce the gallery in unison, by continuing to exist just a few yards away from each other. ‘

With support from the following acts, and poetry open mic slots available:
