I'm Kenney Mencher. I'm an artist who left a tenured professorship in 2016 to pursue making art full time. This blog is about art, art history, with a emphasis on human rights. I make homoerotic art featuring bears, otters & other gay wildlife.
Dartington is going queer to mark the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality.
A Dartington Outing is billed as seven days of queer arts and bent events including films, theatre, live arts, music and talks.
It will be the first major queer arts festival designed to reconnect with Dartington Hall’s “rich history as a progressive and experimental arts venue,” said Dartington Trust director Amy Bere.
She said: “We’re thrilled to showcase and celebrate the work of LGBT artists, heroes and pioneers at Dartington, with our long history of championing risk taking, provocation and extraordinary contemporary art and independent film in rural south Devon.
