If Memory Serves 

Birmingham Hippodrome, Hurst St, Birmingham, B5 4TB
15 September - 14 November 2019
Opens 14 September, 12-2PM

If Memory Serves is a research project by Ryan Kearney, looking to narrate The Nightingale Club’s previous venue on Thorp Street, which in 1994 was acquired for the Hippodrome’s expansion. Through a combination of first-hand accounts and archival material, the display considers the role of memory in forming a queerer archive, while encouraging discussions around the regeneration of Birmingham’s LGBTQ+ spaces.
