Bringing together writing made to be heard and felt, writing aloud is an evening of readings, connecting artists whose subjectivity and voice are a vital element to the communication of their work. Join us for this informal event, where we will listen to a range of texts, creating space to aurally encounter written work.

Contributing artists include Moza Al Matrooshi, Marta Barina, Rhona Eve Clews, Gonçalo Lamas, Imani Robinson, Ebun Sodipo and Ruby Wroe.

This evening of readings was born out Ruby Wroe’s year long award with ACME, enabled by the Tomart Foundation, in which her research revolved around the transgressive potential of writing that integrates the self and everyday lived experience, into broader discussions of contemporary society.

Gonçalo Lamas is an artist and writer born in Porto, Portugal. After studying film in Porto and Bournemouth, Gonçalo was accepted into the BA Fine Art at Central Saint Martins from which he graduated in 2017 – with a semester in Berlin with Hito Steyerl’s class at UdK. His work has been performed, read and overheard in small pockets of London, Plymouth, Porto and Berlin, as well as a few low-cost airplanes around Europe. Recent writing of his can be found in A Queer Anthology of Rage, from Pilot Press, to be presented at the ICA this November.
