- Here in This Room
Here in This Room is a group exhibition including moving image, installation, mixed media, sound and performance, taking place at Site Gallery, S1 Artspace and on Sheffield DocFest’s Online Exhibitions Platform. The exhibition focuses on the dual concepts of “domestic ambience” and “domestic surrealism”, considering the ways that artists have depicted or reimagined living spaces, domestic labour/routines, or many different ideas of home.
- In Posse: Charlotte Jarvis
Site Gallery, Brown Street, Sheffield, S1 2BS
In Posse documents a quest to make the world’s first ‘female’ semen aiming to rewrite the cultural narrative around semen as a revered magical substance.
- The Registry: Alex Tyson
S1 Artspace, 1 Norwich Street, Park Hill, Sheffield S2 5PN
The Registry, a new moving image installation, is Alex Tyson’s first narrative work, using fiction as a means to comment on topics salient to the documentary/non-fiction field.

SHU Performance Space
A cross-generational pairing of two Asian American artists based in the San Francisco Bay Area, this exhibition showcases Al Wong, who has produced innovative experimental films, installations and photography since the 1960s, and Emily Chao, whose short-form films focusing on identity and diaspora have been made since 2015.
