FOR THE FIRST TIME: Exhibition celebrating the art work of Gay Liberation Front and other LGBTQ activists from the past 50 years.

Bookings are essential – please see the whole programme and book details on Outsavvy here

2020 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Gay Liberation Front in the UK, the movement that was born out of the Stonewall Uprising in New York and radically shifted the narrative around LGBTQ+ equality in the UK, leading to the first Gay Pride March in London in 1972. 

While other spaces have exhibited GLF artefacts before, this is the first ever exhibition to focus solely on the artwork, of whatever form, made for and by GLF activists from the last 50 years, as well as younger LGBTQ+ activist artists

Paintings, sketches, print work, placards, posters, banners and interactive instillations populate this exhibition, curated by Dan de la Motte (BLOOLIPS AND RADICAL DRAG, Platform Southwark 2019). Associate Curator is Lily Cheetah.

With accompanying festival of events, including:

Dan Glass reading from his book United QueerdomUCL URBAN LAB, Political Print Making Workshop with Brooke Palmieri of Camp Books and poster and print making workshop with Riposte.
