    Marc Almond – Addicted to Excess
    An exhibition celebrating life and art.

    15th July – 27th August
    Open Tuesday-Sunday, closed Monday

    Marc Almond’s 60th birthday celebration remarkably coincides with the 50th year anniversary of the legalisation of homosexuality in the UK. This exhibition fuses imagery, artefacts, photographs and paintings from a trailblazing career, depicting a unique artist unafraid to venture into uncharted creative arenas.

    Displayed publicly for the first time are photographic prints by Peter Ashworth, a specially commissioned portrait by artist Mark Wardel and a unique series of collages created by Marc Almond. These works will be shown alongside photography by Mike Owen, Scott Ewalt, Aaron Cobbett and Andrew Caitlin, paintings by Pierre and Gilles and Matthew Stradling and video work by Jamie Mcleod and Gerry McNee.

    This is the fourth exhibition in the series ‘Homospectives’ exploring work of LGBTQ artists to mark the anniversaries of the groundbreaking Wolfenden Report (1957) and Sexual Offences Act (1967).
