“What’s happening beneath the surface (and) what’s happening in queer culture, for the individuals, for the communities, is the more important story. It’s a story about people liberating themselves, liberating each other (and) finding ways – whoever they are – to be themselves and to identify each other. Going out, staying in, feeling it, flaunting it – all human emotion is on display.”
Queer British Art takes a closer look at the LGBTQ life in Britain through art. It marks the 50th year of the partial decrimilization of male homosexuality in England. See how these talented artists expressed their emotions and thoughts during such difficult times.
Artists include Simeon Soloman, Evelyne De Morgane, Claude Cahun, the Bloomsbury set, and Angus McBean – with Francis Bacon and David Hockney closing the show.
