LONDON: Queer British Art @ Tate Britian
This show marks the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of male homosexuality in England in 1967.
Queer British Art explores how artists expressed themselves in a time when established assumptions about gender and sexuality were being questioned and transformed.
There are some deeply personal and intimate works, as well as those aimed at a wider public, which helped to forge a sense of community when modern terminology of ‘lesbian’, ‘gay’, ‘bisexual’ and ‘trans’ were unrecognised.
Together, they reveal a remarkable range of identities and stories, from the playful to the political and from the erotic to the domestic.
