Newcastle-based artist David Reynolds is showcasing a new body of work at The Auxiliary in Middlesbrough from Friday 11th February until Saturday 19th March. This innovative solo exhibition, entitled Do Cyborgs Dream Of Electric Queers?, is a celebration of the world of Queer culture within science fiction.

Reynolds has used the research of contemporary theorists and philosophers in order to develop a range of visual works which are not restricted by a single artistic medium. Exploring their themes through animation, digital creations and sculpture, the artist shares a dynamic series of creative pieces. Alongside this, Reynolds has developed a publication that can be picked up when visiting the space.

This exhibition looks back at where we’ve come from and considers what our future may be, raising questions not only of the history of Queer narratives, but also the direction we might be heading. Consisting of three different collections, the work presented within The Auxiliary shares the magic of the Queer world and the wonders of sci-fi.

There is a chance to get a closer look at 11am on Saturday 12th March, when Reynolds will be giving a free artist talk and tour of the exhibition space. From the digital imagery of the Familiar New Worlds collection, to the sculptural works of the Unpronounceable By Ball series, this exhibition pays tribute to the diverse worlds of sci-fi and Queerness.

Do Cyborgs Dream Of Electric Queers? is at The Auxiliary, Middlesbrough from Friday 11th February until Saturday 19th March.
