Coming Out: Sexuality, Gender and Identity

Overview

Coming OutThe Walker Art Gallery marks the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of male homosexual acts in England and Wales (1967 Sexual Offences Act) with a major exhibition drawn from the Arts Council Collection and its own collections.

Coming Out: Sexuality, Gender and Identity will bring together a diverse range of artists who have used their work to explore sexuality and gender identity since 1967. The exhibition will reveal the findings of over two years of research by the Gallery into LGBT history, visual culture, its collection and the Arts Council Collection, revealing hidden queer histories and institutional blind spots that will be addressed through the exhibition’s programme of events and performances.

The exhibition includes artists David Hockney, Steve McQueen, LINDER, James Richards and Sarah Lucas among others, as well as new acquisitions to the Walker’s collection, generously funded by the Art Fund New Collecting Award scheme.
