Come Out & Play exhibition to support the work of Albert Kennedy Trust (akt)

Graham Robson June 2, 2022

Curated by artist Andrew Salagdo, the LGBTQ+ themed exhibition Come Out & Play will celebrate internationally-based queer artists who prioritise a bold approach and work that is celebratory, challenging, and progressive. The exhibition will support the work of LGBTQ+ homelessness charity Albert Kennedy Trust (akt); Russell Tovey, patron of the charity, has authored the exhibition text.

Included works are primarily in – but not limited to – the form of figurative painting. The exhibition presents lesser-known LGBTQ+ artists alongside mid-career or more established artists at work today.
