This collaborative exhibition is the first time pop icon, DJ and photographer Boy George has publicly exhibited his photo/graphic artworks. Working with club culture pop painter TradeMark, the exhibition explores identity, specifically the notion of the constructed identities adopted by anyone trying to live outside the heterosexual mainstream.  The show will feature portraits of subcultural gay icons like Divine, Jackie Curtis, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop and Leigh Bowery as well as contemporary photographs of some of the original gay punks and Philip Sallon, the first person to wear a bin liner and Steve Strange the seminal New Romantic.
