International exhibition

open call

International exhibition: 18 and 19 January at Cookhouse Gallery, London. Deadline: Monday, 11 December.

arc: art from rebellion and connection

At The Queer Museum, our mission since 2018 has been to promote queer artists globally. Our collection features artists from diverse backgrounds, emphasizing that one’s nationality and sexual orientation should not impede artistic practice. To facilitate this, we encourage artist collaboration and organize multiple international exhibitions annually.

We invite LGBTQIAP+ artists from UAL to participate in the “arc” exhibition. This interdisciplinary showcase aims to underscore the strength of our community and provide a platform for uninhibited expression.


What We Seek

We are interested in queer artists exploring themes of sexuality, affection, fears, hopes, and any other significant topics. This inclusive open call welcomes diverse artistic expressions and media.


Submission Guidelines

Send your proposals and artwork samples to [email protected]. Include an image or example of the work, a brief artist statement, the title, media, and a concise description.
