Here&Now20: Perfectly Queer
HERE&NOW20: Perfectly Queer brings together newly commissioned work by eight multidisciplinary artists who draw on histories and their own lived experiences to reflect on what it means to be queer. The artists in this exhibition explore a wide range of themes and issues, from notions of family and community, local queer history, and transgender and non-binary lived experiences. Through intergenerational dialogues these artists dismantle dominant heteronormative narratives and highlight the continuing resistance of queer culture.
HERE&NOW20: Perfectly Queer is the first exhibition in over twenty years to exclusively feature the work of local queer artists at a Western Australian institution.
