Exhibition Highlight: Derek Jarman – Protest!  

Derek Jarman

We remember watching Jarman’s remarkable homoerotic Sebastiane (1976) from a sheltered rural outpost in the nineties. It most certainly was on Channel 4. Delivered in Latin, it straddled what the boundary of what was considered pornography. Jarman was a truly innovative rebel who created defiantly non-commercial work. Outrage fuelled his art and he reacted against the official indifference to the AIDS crisis engulfing the ‘80s, compounded by Thatcher’s Section 28 which tried to outlaw the promotion of homosexuality by local authorities. Protest! captures Jarman’s engagement with both art and society. Major bodies of work, from the 1960s to the 1990s, have been gathered together, many of which have never been seen in public before. The exhibition and accompanying catalogue will provide a comprehensive examination of Jarman’s work, with over 150 works in diverse media, dating from 1958 – 1993.
