Exhibiting LGBTQ History at the British Museum
“This session presents work in progress for two small exhibitions taking place at the British Museum in 2017, briefly outlining the proposed approach for both displays, and highlighting some of the objects that may be included.
One of the displays is inspired by Dr Richard Parkinson’s recent publication, A Little Gay History – Desire and Diversity Across the World, and will draw on objects from each of the Museum’s curatorial departments, ranging chronologically from the ancient world to the present day. The other display focuses on works on paper from the Prints and Drawings Department that reflect LGBTQ themes or subjects including etchings by David Hockney.”
