Jez's work has been selected for inclusion in this significant forthcoming exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery Liverpool. Coming Out explores sexuality and gender identity in Britain since 1967, marking the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of male homosexual acts in England and Wales. The exhibition will reveal the findings of over two years of research by the Gallery into both these collections, LGBT history and visual culture, revealing hidden queer histories and institutional blind spots that will be addressed through the exhibition’s programme of events and performances. The Walker / National Museums Liverpool have acquired two of Jez's works for their permanent collection, generously funded by the Art Fund New Collecting Award scheme.

The exhibition will subsequently tour to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, November 2017 - February 2018
