(UN)ACCEPTABLE - An art exhibition to raise awareness of homophobia

17th to 22nd of June 2022 @ The Complex Gallery


A Portrait Exhibition by Andrej Getman, MFA, BA(Hons)


(Un)Acceptable is an art exhibition to raise awareness of the ongoing homophobia, transphobia and biphobia experienced by members of the LGBTQ+ community across the world. Pride began as a protest, lest we forget amidst the celebrations, our community is still fighting for acceptance today.

 

Andrej Getman, 'Self-portrait', 2014

Andrej Getman is a visual artist/expressionist painter, originally born in Klaipeda, Lithuania. In 2005 Andrej moved to Ireland, and he is currently living and working in Dublin. In 2014 Ireland became his forever home when he was made an official Irish citizen. Since June 2020, Andrej has occupied a studio in Mart Gallery & Studios in Harold’s Cross. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Masters in Fine Art – Painting, from NCAD. Andrej explores the themes of urbanisation, socio-political injustice & modern culture. His current research is based on targeted discrimination of the LGBTQ+ community in Ireland and across the world. Drawing on his own personal experience of homophobia and the international news of aggression and murders of LGBTQ+ people worldwide, he is collecting stories and visual resources which he translates into portraits of the victims and survivors within the LGBTQ+ communities.
