Martha Summers

Martha Summers is an Architect, Artist, and Leatherworker living and working in London.

She was the designer of the Barbican's 2022 exhibition "Out & About!" , showing 40 moments from the Bishopsgate Institute's archive of LGBTQ+ ephemera, and of the London LGBTQ+ Community Centre's Pop-Up space on the Southbank, completed in 2021 by a team of entirely LGBTQ+ tradespeople. Her artistic practice includes ongoing mending practices along with pieces that more explicitly address queer themes in a variety of media, such as TOOLbelt (2022), a lovingly handcrafted hybrid of a leather strap-on harness and a toolbelt.
