About the event
The exhibition opens on Friday 2nd September 6-8pm, with a live performance from Betty the Strawberry. It will be open Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th, 10-5pm. The space is wheelchair accessible.
This exhibition explores Bry’s ongoing existence as her alter ego Betty the Strawberry, the childhood experiences that helped form Betty, and how these manifest through Betty to depict Bry’s relationship with her own queerness and the body. Exhibited all together for the first time, Becoming Red presents an autobiographical archive of Betty the Strawberry, depicted through moving image, print, painting, and performance.
The exhibition forms part of Cabbage’s Resilience Programme, which is concluding with a month long take over of @frenchstreetglasgow with different artist exhibitions and events each weekend in September.
