#WorkoftheWeek is Henry Moore's drawing of his hand, which he made when he was eighty-one. 'Hands can convey so much, they can beg or refuse, take or give, be open or clenched, show content or anxiety. Throughout history artists have shown through the hands the feelings they wished to represent.' - Henry Moore

Today is International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.
'I think art plays a key part in fighting against homophobia. It's important to push forward and say there is a place for us in culture. On the basis that the generation after us won't know what we went through, and the generation after them won't know what they went through, hopefully gradually people can stop feeling afraid.' - Susan Calman

#WorkoftheWeek: In honour of #Ramadan, this week's work is an etching by Iranian artist and former Turner Prize nominee, Shirazeh Houshiary. This work consists of layers of words representing interpretations of sayings in the Quran. The artist said: 'I set out to capture my breath, to find the essence of my own existence, transcending name, nationality, cultures.' Wishing everyone #RamadanMubarak!
