In celebration of LGBT History Month, the Gallery presents a special exhibition project with new work by Matt Smith. 27 February - 5 May 2012

A display of materials from Special Collections related to Edward Carpenter, Victorian writer, poet and early gay activist is the inspiration for Smith's "interventions" in the University Art Collection.

Everyday objects are inscribed with stories by different people from the LGBT community, whose experiences shed light on the multiple and varied experiences within the Britisth LGBT community in the past 100 years.

These stories offer alternate views of our shared history, and its representation in museums and galleries.

Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
