Hidden Histories
Hidden Histories
New Art Gallery Walsall
13 May — 10 July 2004

While working for the artist and curator Michael Petry in London, I got to support the creation of the first ever survey show and publication to focus of the art of same gender lovers, exploring their hidden histories through portraits. Identifying key networks of artists and exploring dialogues between artists over the twentieth century, and into the present day, this publication remains an important document of queer history. 

Major works are included by Francis Bacon, Per Barclay, Cecil Beaton, Bruce of LA, Jean Cocteau, Duncan Grant, Sunil Gupta, David Hockney, Jasper Johns, John Minton, Pavel Tchelitchev, Wolfgang Tillmans, Henry Scott Tuke, Keith Vaughan, Andy Warhol and David Wojnarawicz, as well as newly commissioned site specific work by barrett-forster.
