The Queer Window Project
In 2013 Asten was commissioned to produce the ‘Queer Window Project’. Here, Asten placed a call asking for members of the LGBT community to come forward and be photographed and drawn. The result was thirty photographs, and fifteen large-scale illustrations. This work was then exhibited in a range of public venues around the city with the aim to enhance the accessibility of the portraits whilst also increasing the visibility of the Queer Community. They were also exhibited, with the photographic counterpart, at Creative Scotland, Edinburgh and East Kilbride Arts Centre for the following LGBT History Month.
This project is possible thanks to the support from:
LGBT History Month Cultural Commissions
Macrobert Arts Centre, Stirling
LGBT Youth Scotland
