Celebrating queer art and shining a spotlight on the work of LGBT+ artists
Pride 2020 will be an altogether more arty affair than ever before...
Why? Because for the first time The Festival will include in the month-long programme 'FIFTY-TWO', an exhibition celebrating Queer Art and spotlighting the work of LGBTQ+ artists.
This is not, however, like so many other such events, the domain of an elite few - far from it!
Curated by London artist, David Hodge (aka Miss Dusty O), this exhibition reflects a wide range of artists creating from various and diverse points of view.
A panel of LGBTQ+ personalities and allies, curated by Dusty O herself, will select the 52 works on show - each representing a year since the first Pride Festival. The pieces will be showcased in a central London gallery during the month of July and will be available for purchase with some of the proceeds supporting Pride in London.
As Pride in London - we are trying to ensure we constantly reach out to new communities and help shine the light onto our community and show the world what the LGBT+ has to offer. Let’s make the community proud of its visual artists!
