Arrows Of Desire - group art show celebrating contemporary artists' interpretation of Saint Sebastian: martyr, patron saint, queer icon

  • Exhibition and Tours

5-20 July 2019, Mon - Sat, 12-6pm

'Arrows of Desire' is a group art exhibition and an unprecedented two-week celebration of Saint Sebastian: martyr, patron saint and queer icon. Thirty established and emerging international contemporary artists re-interpret the image of Sebastian in a variety of media: painting, textile, sculpture, performance and video.

‘Arrows of Desire’ explores universal themes - sex, religion, persecution. With a narrative focused around LGBTQ, BDSM and figurative art, the work is bold, uncensored and controversial, but with a genuine spiritual aspect always present. Powerful select art pieces, sensitively considered and executed with expert technical skill, explore this often ambiguous relationship of patronship and how it manifests itself artistically.
