A pop-up, selling exhibition and events programme to celebrate the work of LGBTQ+ artists and allies, running from 4th to 10th July 2019, during Pride in London.

About

Queer Frontiers is set to celebrate the work of LGBTQ+ artists and allies with a pop-up exhibition and events programme open to the public from 4th to 10th July 2019, during Pride in London. The exhibition will feature 31 artworks by 26 emerging and established artists, ranging from painting and photography to sculpture and screenprints. Proceeds from the sale of the artwork will go to support charities akt and Switchboard and LGBTQ+ artists and allies, with either 50% or 100% of sales donated at the individual artists’ discretion.

The final curation for this year’s event was selected by art consultants ARTIQ (the event’s instigators and organisers); event sponsors and specialist insurers Hiscox and specially-invited judges from The Whitechapel Art Gallery. The chosen artworks include sculpture by Sam Shendi, photographic images by leading Italian photographer Paolo Raeli and artist Teo Robinson; artworks by Helen Beard, Bernard Fournier, textile artist Henry Hussey and leading street and installation artists Sickboy and Maser, as well as some of the most exciting up-and-coming artists selected by the judges, following an open call for submissions.

‘We’ve been blown away by the standard and number of serious works of art offered to ‘Queer Frontiers’ this year’, Patrick McCrae, CEO of ARTIQ commented. ‘As a consultancy, we’re very proud of our commitment to the LBGTQ+ community and the efforts of our team in making this event a success. It represents a great opportunity for buyers to purchase artworks from some of the most exciting new names in art and to raise funds for two charities who work with vulnerable young people and offer a listening service to the community.’

The 2019 event will include a week-long free-entry pop-up exhibition at 8-10 Brewer Street (above the soon-to-reopen legendary Soho club Madame JoJo’s), London W1, alongside a Pride party on July 6th, arts programming, such as life-drawing classes for the young people akt supports and a panel discussion with Creative Industries Federation from 6-9pm on July 10th.
