Coming out at The Walker Gallery

The 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, including Hockney, James Richards and Sarah Lucas, all who have used their work to explore sexuality and gender identity since 1967.

The exhibition reveals 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.
