Contemporary Art and Human Rights – Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Art and Culture

By Sean McGlashan Victoria Hollows Katie Bruce

This publication includes information about each of the works from the 2009 exhibition and the wider programme for sh[OUT] . The exhibition at GoMA focused on portraiture and self-portraiture about bodies, how they are different from each other and how differently they have been used. While the purpose is to discuss and question the state of exclusion of LGBTI people in the contemporary society, the show also explored love, family, marriage and partnership which are not common themes in contemporary art.
