The annual Arcus Pride Art exhibition at Clifford Chance has become one of the largest corporate supported exhibitions of artworks by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT+) and supporter artists.
For the 2019 London Pride show curator Michael Petry wants to show the diversity of LGBTQ+ work being made in the UK.
To that end, he asked established as well as younger artists to contribute, including artists across the LGBTQ+ family. This show marks the first time a trans artist and a gender queer artist will be exhibiting. The artists’ body of works represents a reflection of themselves as well as their practice. This exhibition is largely photo-based. Adam Wilson Holmes and Richard Sawdon Smith turn their camera on themselves while Emli Bendixen focuses on her own and other LGBTQ+ families. Gemma Marmalade uses her camera in the documentation of conceptual projects and also included will be documentation of the two live performances (at the opening) by Thierry Alexandre and Teo Robinson. Hannah Honeywill’s body of sculpture sees everyday objects queered. All the artists speak of their own diverse experiences in the universal language of art. Come join in the conversation.
