    Kiss My Genders
    Hayward Gallery
    London
    12 Jun 2019 to Sun 8 Sep 2019

    PR: This summer Hayward Gallery presents Kiss My Genders, a group exhibition celebrating more than 30 international artists whose work explores and engages with gender identity.

    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.

    Working across photography, painting, sculpture, installation and video, many of the artists in Kiss My Gendersmove beyond a conventional understanding of the body, and in doing so open up new possibilities for gender, beauty and representations of the human form.

    The exhibition includes new and site-specific works by Chitra Ganesh, Hannah Quinlan & Rosie Hastings and Jenkin van Zyl. Occupying the entire Hayward Gallery, Kiss My Genders also extends beyond the gallery walls, with artworks by Ad Minoliti and Athi-Patra Ruga and a poem by Tarek Lakhrissi that transform elements of Southbank Centre’s wider site.
