Screw Your Courage to the Sticking Place, explores queer culture and the currents of change; unearthing the elements that come together to rupture boundaries and challenge opinion. We present work by a group of artists who are pivotal in counter-culture movements and queer culture, by pursuing an alternative perspective with fearless clarity.
