Queer Art(ists) Now

Queer Art(ists) Now, presented by And What? Queer. Arts. Festival is our annual open call platform/exhibition for contemporary, UK based, Queer and LGBTQIA+ artists. The exhibition Queer Art(ists) Now will provide a snap-shot of what artists within our communities are making right now; an insight into the thoughts, preoccupations, aesthetics, and politics of queer artists. Keep it fresh.

The exhibition will feature a number of our favorite artists from last year including La JohnJoseph, Nigel Grimmer, Joanne Newman and Eden Topall-Rabanes (all of whom also made up the selection panel to keep it peer-to-peer) and a further BIG-LOAD of artists selected from the open call.

Expect: painting, video, performance. sculpture, photography, illustration and the unexpected.

Grab yourself a masterpiece of the future as all works will be for sale with all sales going directly back to the artist.
