Gaze on Screen

Tue – Sun, 10am – 5pm

The Customs House

An exhibition gathering together the work of a range of queer artists based in the North East.

Working across a diverse range of media, from digital illustration to oil painting to collage, the artists exhibiting as part of Gaze on Screen are nevertheless united by a focus on TV and film, filtered through a queer perspective. They have produced a diverse and compelling body of work reflecting upon the complicated relationship that many LGBTQ+ people have had with media representation, especially during times when openly queer characters were few and far between.

The exhibition features a set of collages which were produced as part of a series of workshops run with local LGBTQ+ community groups, opening up the project to a broader range of people, who may not have come from a traditional artistic background. This collaborative spirit is continued by a group printmaking project taking place throughout the exhibition’s duration.
