Advisory Board

Claye Bowler

Artist and Museum Worker



Claye Bowler is an Artist and Museum Worker who is particularly interested in the political priorities of historical and current collecting within archives, and museum collections. Bowler focuses on subverting how queer and trans narratives have been perpetually hidden, erased or destroyed, and therefore not usually held within collections. He has created artwork around this but also created space for queer and trans people when Directing Yonder Gallery and Yorkshire Trans Choir.

Claye has held a variety of roles within the museum sector, Front of House with National Trust and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Collections Care at Nýlistasafnið and Reykjavik Art Museum, and most recently in Museum Registration with Tate, National Galleries of Scotland, Royal Armouries and Leeds Museums & Galleries. He is currently working with the Museum of Transology on their TransPrideUK collections.

Claye is looking forward to developing exhibitions, working with artists and assisting in starting the Vagina Museum collection.
