men on men art competition 2017 laird melbourne gay

‘See Men on Men competition’ winners...

The Laird proudly presents the annual Men on Men Art Exhibition and Competition for 2018 (MOM). Held in June each year, MOM coincides with VicBears’ ‘Southern HiBearnation’, an annual gathering of bears & their admirers.

Applications have now closed and we look forward to presenting a great array of works, kicking off on Saturday 2nd June with our gender-inclusive Open Day. As well as being your first chance to view and purchase works, it’s a great day to just hang out in the beer garden with friends, family and random chin-strokers. The Open Day is also the only chance to cast your vote in the People’s Choice category.

We welcome CIS and Trans male artists from all cultures, backgrounds and histories to submit works. Previously billed as ‘a celebration of masculinity’, The Laird acknowledges the diversity of our customers. We welcome artists to enter works which express their experiences, desires or identity.

We’d like to thank our generous sponsors and supporters: Deans Art, JOY 94.9, Bummer, VicBears and DEANation.
