Queer Frontiers celebrates the work of LGBTQ+ artists and allies, with a pop-up exhibition and programme of events open to the public from 3rd to 10 July 2019, during Pride in London. The exhibition will showcase 31 artworks by 26 emerging and established artists, ranging from painting and photography to sculpture and screenprints. Proceeds from the sale of artwork will go to support charities Akt and Switchboard and LGBTQ+ artists and allies, with either 50% or 100% of sales donated at the individual artists’ discretion.
The final curation for this year’s event was selected by leading art consultants ARTIQ (the event’s instigators and organisers); event sponsors and specialist insurers Hiscox and specially-invited judges from The Whitechapel Art Gallery. Artworks will include sculpture by Sam Shendi, photographic images by leading Italian photographer Paolo Raeli and artist Teo Robinson; artworks by Helen Beard, Bernard Fournier, textile artist Henry Hussey and leading street and installation artists Sickboy and Maser alongside some of the most exciting up and coming artists, selected by the judges via an open call to the public.
