Statement

Jez Dolan is an artist based in Manchester UK. His work explores queerness and identity through the codification of language, with a specific focus on secrecy and hiddenness – the things we don’t say. Text and language act as both form and content in his work, which is interdisciplinary and research-driven, whilst often exploring archival source materials from which to create new artworks. He works with different media according to the needs and context of each project: from printmaking and drawing to performance, installation and curating,

Dolan has recently shown work at; Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, HOME, Manchester,The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, NYC,The People’s History Museum, The UK Parliament Art Collection & Archives, The Walker Art Gallery Liverpool, and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
