Michael Petry held a place on the jury at SMACH 2019, a biennial located in the Dolomites
SMACH is an international call for artists. The fourth edition of SMACH puts the the word ‘Heimat’ as it’s main focus, this is not a simple word. It is well known that the word proves untranslatable in many languages, English and Italian included. The language barrier reduces its meaning to concepts such as ‘motherland’ are banal, if not completely misleading.
Arcus Pride Art Exhibition 2019
Michael Petry has curated Clifford Chance's 13th annual Arcus Pride Art exhibition that celebrates global LGBT+ inclusion.
Petry adds: "For the 2019 London Pride show I wanted to show the diversity of work being made in the UK. To that end I have asked established as well as younger artists to contribute, including artists across the LGBTQ+ family. This show marks the first time we have exhibited a trans artist and a gender queer artist".
