Paul Petro Contemporary Art is pleased to present the group exhibition Standing Ground III, Mighty and Real.

Will Munro's legacy features prominently in our Pride group exhibition Standing Ground III, Mighty and Real, with works in Munro's memory by FASTWÜRMS and Zachari Logan, as well as a photograph by the artist. Works by Will Munro and Robert Flack were exhibited together in the original Standing Ground (2014), and with a larger field of artists in Standing Ground II, Chance and Variation (2016).

In Standing Ground III, Mighty and Real the field is expanded further. Munro's mantra "know your history" extends to queer art world elders such as Ross Bleckner and to self-empowered black queer music icon Sylvester and his disco hit "You Make Me Feel Mighty Real", a title which echoes in a photographic homage to Sylvester from 1989 by Robert Flack.
