Free and open to all

Come and join Book Works and Phillida Reid Gallery for the launch of the new book by Prem Sahib, That Fire Over There at Phillida Reid Grape Street on 8 September.

That Fire Over There takes fire as a metaphor for ideas around queer attachment, proximity, and personal and collective transformation. It also excavates the history of a real fire which in 1981 destroyed the Hambrough Tavern – a contested site symbolic of provocation and conflict against far-right groups in Southall, west London, where Prem Sahib grew up.

Prem Sahib will also have a new solo exhibition, The Life Cycle of a Flea, opening at Phillida Reid on 6 October 2023.
