Kiss My Genders is a group exhibition celebrating more than 30 international artists whose work explores and engages with gender identity.
The exhibition has received multiple five-star reviews, including one from The Guardian praising that ‘it touches, in profound ways, on what it is to be human’. Dubbed an ‘enthralling exhibition with a crucial sense of activism’ by the Evening Standard, Kiss My Genders is a ‘trailblazing show’ (The Telegraph) of ‘dazzling works’ (Metro).
Spanning the past 50 years, Kiss My Genders brings together over 100 artworks by artists from around the world who employ a wide range of approaches to articulate and engage with gender fluidity, as well as with non-binary, trans and intersex identities.
