I love the look of this; Studio Voltaire project currently installed for 6 months. The Oscar Wilde Temple is an immersive work of art and safe space which honors our LGBT+ community and liberation from its earliest days to the present where the space also work’s as a functional space, you can even get married there! Created by artists McDermott and McGough in partnership with the Albert Kennedy Trust and Studio Voltaire, free to go – 1a Nelson’s Row, SW4 7JR.
