// Opening Wednesday 25 November 2015, 6pm

// Thursday 26 November – Saturday 12 December 2015

 

Recent shows curated by Tanu Gago, Kirsty Ashleigh, Michael Lett and Rainbow Youth refocus the need for artists and writers to continue to critically engage within the processes and mechanisms in which we are represented to ourselves and to others. These few exhibitions address the evident gaps in the visibility of some LGBTQI practitioners and silos of representation.

Central to the kaupapa for this exhibition is the intention to foster an opportunity for intergenerational and cross-cultural creative dialogues between queer artists and writers. The wider discussion around queer art practitioners and the communities associated with the exhibition will be recorded for a forthcoming publication.
