Initially designed to win funding for a stand-alone documentary, The Art of Being Queer has grown in ways that we could not have imagined. This project is still in its infancy, and yet the response has been overwhelming. To us, it has proved that our project’s worth is clear: queer artists everywhere need this platform to showcase their work that is otherwise underrepresented in mainstream media.
We have had close and personal interviews with over 30 artists from around the world and have collated over 25 hours of content. The first ever episode of The Art of Being Queer Podcast has launched with significant success, and we will be pushing out a new episode featuring differents artists and conversations on queer topics every three weeks.
The exhibition features 26 artists from around the world. We will be showcasing: ‘If I Could Reach the Stars’ [original], by the world-renowned visual artist and activist, Paul Richmond; ‘Call Me Queer’, [large format], by the photographer Martin Kamen, most notable for his work in the Czech National Gallery; ‘Sad Boys’ [original] by visual artist, Thomas Mars.
