LONDON: Queer British Art @ Tate Britian

At the Tate Britain FINISHED

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.
