QUEER FRONTIERS: FOUR EMERGING LGBTQ ARTISTS TO LOOK OUT FOR
ARTIQ takes an innovative approach to the art world, providing a combination of consultancy, rental and art-related experiences, all underpinned by the core principle of paying artists fairly.
Each year they run a charity exhibition, Queer Frontiers, to raise awareness of international queer artists and allies, and to raise money for various causes affecting the LGBTQ+ community and young people.
“Social distancing regulations have postponed London Pride until next year, and for queer artists, already underrepresented in galleries and museums, the consequences of continued closures could have serious financial implications,” explains Patrick. “So, even though we can’t have a physical exhibition in Soho for now, we are taking Queer Frontiers online, to ensure the visibility of international queer artists is represented, and to generate funds for a worthy cause, with all sales being split between the artist and East London charity Renaissance Foundation, who support young people living with significant challenges to reach their full potential, a mantra ever more important in this incredibly challenging year.
