Feminine Moments' newsletter

February 2017

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

'Queer British Art' opening at Tate in London in April will for the first time in British history present works from 1861–1967 relating to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) identities. The show marks the 50th anniversary of the decriminalisation of male homosexuality in England. This year Tate will also be open some other exhibitions celebrating their favourite British queer (male) artists and a few foreign artists too. But don't expect to see much queer feminist art at Tate as this institution is known to be rather malecentric.

With the above as a European 'backdrop' I am happy to present this artist statement and images by queer feminist artist Suzie Pindar (UK).

I Feel You by Suzie Pindar
