King of Queens Screening

New Art Exchange and The University of Nottingham present

Kings of Queens (Dir. Damian Ebanks, 8mins 49seconds) 

This is a Nottingham based micro documentary following a drag queen, a female impersonator and friends. We discover who they are, what they do and why they chose this misunderstood field of work. They are the Kings of Queens.

Age range: Contains some swearing and sexual references.
Admission: FREE

We will also be screening BBC Newsbeat film, ‘Drag Kings of the UK’

Drag Queens are a fixture of pubs, clubs and bars across the UK. But there’s a smaller community of Drag Kings across Britain – the women who dress up and perform as men. More club nights are being put on especially for drag kings and more girls are getting into it. Newsbeat meets three drag kings to find out why they do it, and address how being a drag king relates to someone’s gender, identity and sexuality.

£5 MEAL DEAL available for this event (includes a meal and a drink)

 

Tickets available from NAE

Anyone with a ticket will gain reduced entry to our Party Monsters event late that evening!

Glow Me

Bullet Bar is one of the hottest leather bars in North Hollywood.

They recently hosted a new night called Glow Me, a glow-in-the-dark underwear Parry complete with Blacklight’s, UV paint and fluorescent clothing.

 

Think Nottingham is ready for something similar? Should we incorporate into a future event?

Artist of the Month: Ssion

SSION (pronounced “shun”) is a multifaceted creative project spearheaded by Cody Critcheloe, consisting of music, videos, art and live performance. It began as a punk band in Kentucky where Critcheloe is from, spent formative years in Kansas City, where it grew into the New York and Los Angeles based project it is today. Working with a rotating list of collaborators, Ssion has been sporadically releasing records for over 10 years while directing music videos for other notable artists. Ssion has also created artwork for Yeah Yeah Yeahs “Fever To Tell” and more recently art direction for Charli XCX‘s “Doing It” video. Ssion’s 2012 release “Bent” garnered huge amounts of international attention and was accompanied by critically acclaimed music videos for “My Love Grows in The Dark”, “Earthquake”, “Luvvbazaar”, and “High” – all produced and directed by Critcheloe. Critcheloe currently lives in New York City.

The musical group was formed in Kansas City by vocalist Cody Critcheloe.[1] Ssion self-released their first album “Fucked Into Oblivion” in 1999. In 2003, Ssion made their label debut, releasing the EP “Minor Treat” and the album “Opportunity Bless My Soul” on Version City Records. In 2007, the group released their album “Fools Gold” accompanied with “Clown”, a remix EP, on Sleazetone Records. 2011 saw the self-release of “Bent”, which was later re-released by Dovecote Records. The release of “Bent” coincided with a 3-day performance at MoMA PS1.

Ssion’s releases have been well received by mainstream press, having appeared in The New York Times, Village Voice, Huffington Post, Interview Magazine and Dazed and Confused.

Critcheloe, known for extravagant shows, performs with a live band and as a DJ. He has toured with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Gossip (band), Fischerspooner and House of Ladosha among others.
