I’m delighted to be included in Coming Out, an exhibition at Liverpool’s Walker Art Gallery, which is otherwise known as the “National Gallery of the North”. The show opens on 28th July and I’ll be represented by a work that was purchased by the Arts Council Collection. Hopefully, I’ll be there for the private view as I’ll be in Orkney at around that time.

To quote the press release: “The Walker Art Gallery will mark 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.”
