Event Details

  • Gay Desert Guide's Fun & Game Dept. and TheMenEvent.com present Queer British Art at the Tate.
  • Didn't get the chance to see Tate's seminal, outstanding, incredible, landmark exhibition Queer British Art? Tour it virtually with us!
  • In 2017 Tate Britain in London did something extraordinary. It did something no other museum in the UK had done before—in fact, it did something that *no* other museum had done anywhere before. It staged a landmark exhibition, a summer blockbuster, that focussed squarely on the queer art of a nation: Queer British Art 1861–1967. Never before had the art of LGBTQ people been centre stage in such a visible way. The public went wild for it, and several newspapers gave it 5 stars, including The Guardian which called it "vital, fascinating... strange, sexy and heartwrenching." If you missed this exhibition (just where were you?!) don't worry because now is your chance to tour the exhibition virtually!
  • Queer British Art begins in 1861, when the death penalty for sodomy was abolished in the United Kingdom, and ends in 1967 when sex between men was partially decriminalised. The exhibition was divided over 8 rooms, which took the themes Coded Desires, Public Indecency, Theatrical Types, Bloomsbury and Beyond, Defying Conventions, Arcadia and Soho, Public/Private Lives, Francis Bacon and David Hockney.
  • Within those rooms, and highlights you shall see on this virtual tour are:
    • Frederic Leighton’s sensuous male nudes
    • Beautiful youths in Wilhelm von Gloeden’s photographs
    • Gluck, Britain's first famous gender-queer artist and their defiant self-portrait, the poster image for the exhibition
    • Joe Orton's and Keith Halliwell's mischievously (and hilariously) altered library books
    • The art of Francis Bacon—possibly Britain's greatest painter of the 20th Century
  • Plus much more!
  • This is your only chance to visit or revisit one of the most important exhibitions on queer art there has ever been. Please join us!
  • No refunds, no exchanges. All sales final
