Amsterdam’s Ravestijn Gallery presents Michael Bailey-Gates’ reflections on binary and fluid gender identities, continuing until October 16, 2021.
‘A Glint In The Kindling’ – displayed at Amsterdam’s Ravestijn Gallery until October 16 – is the first European solo show by American photographer Michael Bailey-Gates, who also works as a model, stylist and designer.
In this series, the artist transcends established gender norms, and imagines new ways of being within the confines of a gender binary. Intimate questions about our relationships to one another are at the root of Bailey-Gates’ work, who takes on the role of both photographer and subject. Rather than depicting a world of the artist’s own making, the resulting images offer glimpses into parts of society where gender, identity and sexuality are boundless conditions, perpetually in motion.
Bailey-Gates (b. 1993) received a BA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts, NYC, in 2015.
