Curated by Lily Waite, I Will Hold Your Gaze aims to provide a much-needed space and platform for trans and non-binary students and graduates across UAL, highlighting and celebrating their voices. As in society, the trans community within the ‘art world’ is still massively underrepresented, often overlooked and ignored. 

A trans-disciplinary exhibition I Will Hold Your Gaze will attempt to explore gender, race, sexuality, and identity through different media. Reacting to the broader art world and media’s ignorance, problematic view and standpoints,  I Will Hold Your Gaze navigates cis and male gazes, resulting in an exhibition that provides an authentic insight into the lives of trans and non-binary individuals.  

‘I will hold your gaze’ is supported by Arts SU and the UAL Dean of Students’ Office.
