Leigh Bowery: Tell Them I’ve Gone to Papua New Guinea
Ends February 6
This fabulous exhibition is a celebration of the life and finest looks of the late nightlife icon and legendary figure in the worlds of art, fashion, dance, club and music. Born in Sunshine, Australia, Leigh himself was essentially the living, breathing work of art. Also reknowned as one of Lucian Freud's most famous models, his large naked bald form became almost as recognisable as when wearing his outlandish and ornately decorated costumes and creations.
The Fitzrovia Chapel, the only remaining building of the Middlesex Hospital, where Leigh died from AIDS in 1994, charts the arch provocateur and performance artist's life and work with a stunning display of his thrilling and extreme creations plus a specially produced short film.
