Alien Sex Club
An exhibition by John Walter

We are pleased to announce that in addition to the generous support of those who gave to our crowdfunding campaign Alien Sex Club is supported by a Small Arts Award from The Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England Grants for the Arts. The exhibition will begin at Ambika P3 in July and travel to Homotopia Festival in Liverpool in October.

Alien Sex Club is a major multimedia project by British artist John Walter, which will explore the relationship between visual culture and HIV today. Alien Sex Club will use the spatial device of the cruise maze to bring together works that address the complex subject of contemporary sexual health. The exhibition will consist of a large-scale installation based on the shapes of cruise mazes, found in sex clubs and gay saunas. It will comprise sculpture, painting, video, performance and installation. Visitors will be immersed in a multisensory world in which they can watch videos and live performances, get lost in the maze and have food and drink in the performance bar. Walter’s research in epidemiology is grounded in a collaboration with Dr Alison Rodger, Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in Infectious Diseases and HIV at University College London.
