July Digbeth First Friday: Late Night Opening of ‘Love is Real, and it’s Inside Of My Computer’

5 July 20245–8pm

Join us on Friday 5 July 2024 for a late night opening of Babeworld x utopian_realism’s exhibition, ‘Love is Real, and it’s Inside of My Computer.’ We’ll be open 6–8pm for a regular First Friday opening, so stop by, see the show, and join us for a drink.

If busy First Friday’s aren’t your thing, we’ll also be open 5–6pm on the 5 July for a quiet opening, where there will be no bar, and we ask all visitors to wear a mask and no perfume.⁠

Told through the eyes of a neurodivergent coded character, this exhibition plays on the structures of the gallery and art world, asking us to question and renegotiate how we define what is considered ’new’, ‘exciting’, and ‘taste making’ in the arts.

Based on Babeworld’s lived experience as an intersectionally disabled collective, this commission navigates the fine line between mental productivity and mental burnout through an experiential understanding of disability whilst exposing the alienation of marginalised folk in the art world.

Access: Grand Union is located up two flights of stairs with no lift access. Light and sound levels within the exhibition space can be changed upon request, please speak to a member of staff in the space to arrange this.
