A new exhibition is making history at Showcase Gallery. ‘Making Out 67-17’ is the world’s first collection of LGBTQ+ design, bringing together disciplines, images and objects produced by LGBTQ+ artists since 1967.
The exhibition celebrates the UK’s 50th anniversary of the Repeal of Sexual Offences Act, and will represent the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community.
‘Making Out 67-17’ is curated by Steve Lannin, senior lecturer for BA (Hons) Graphic Design, in partnership with the Showcase Gallery’s Kate Maple. Many of the objects are on loan from the V&A Museum, and feature work from designers such as Alexander McQueen, Holly Johnson, Eileen Gray, Maggi Hambling and Chip Kidd.
The ‘Making Out 67-17’ exhibition will run from 3 November 2017 to 6 January 2018.
