Queer Frontiers moves online for 2020
This year the exhibition is back with a diverse collection of artists from around the world. Works can be purchased on the website and delivered directly to your home. Founded in 2018 by leading art consultancy ARTIQ, Queer Frontiers is an annual charity exhibition featuring work by international LGBTQ+ artists and allies. Previous years saw ARTIQ partnering with London Pride and Hiscox and raise more than £30,000 for non-profit organisations such as Albert Kennedy Trust and Switchboard. Visit Exhibition
Past editions of Queer Frontiers involved pop-up spaces in iconic locations across Soho, to exhibit outstanding work by emerging and established international artists. This year’s theme is self-expression. With the postponement of Pride in London until next year, and for queer artists, already underrepresented in galleries and museums, the consequences of continued closures could have serious financial implications.
That’s why ARTIQ is taking Queer Frontiers online, in collaboration with Sassy Digital and Hiscox, to showcase another incredible selection of works. The goal is to raise funds for East London based charity Renaissance Foundation who help young people in hospitals, students at risk and young carers.
This year’s selection of artists celebrates and explores narratives including female strength, queer survival, nature and spirituality, featuring a variety of styles, media and techniques. From resin and Perspex 3D pieces, pigment transfers and paintings, photography and documented performances to digital collage.
