Davy Pittoors is a queer independent curator, visual creative and arts organiser whose practice interrogates ideas of queer belonging and home-making by blurring the lines between art and craft, gallery and home, and archive and collection. He leverages more than a decade of applied work in crafting immersive and considered audience experiences to spark curiosity and meaning-making between artists, works and viewers.
He is also the founder of Queeriosities, a bi-annual art fair and pop-up events series that seeks to support emerging queer artists while encouraging the spread of both contemporary and historical LGBTQIA+ design objects, art and vernacular ephemera. His Supper Series, led in collaboration with ceramicist Will Martin, forges queer community across the arts around site-specific themes spanning the cruising history of Hampstead Heath, the alternative queer club scene in 1990s Britain and the role of camp & kitsch in queer image making and interpretation.
Past work includes collaboration with London’s Museum of the Home, the Tom of Finland Foundation, Cubitts, McCully & Crane and Louis Vuitton. He has lectured at London College of Contemporary Arts, University of Westminster and Istituto Marangoni — and his writings can be found in Wallpaper magazine and in A Great Gay Book: Stories of Growth, Belonging & Other Queer Possibilities forthcoming in Spring 2024 by Abrams Books.
