Versatile identities in the 21st Century

18 March – 25 April 2021

Wyndham Art Gallery

FLUID will challenge your position, creating new ways of thinking as we navigate the road ahead.

The gender binary is up for discussion, no longer fixed, asking us to inspect how binaries of all types inform the way we experience the world. LGBTQI+ people have long led the way in these conversations and continue to investigate how perceived social norms shape our identities. Fluid expands on these ideas to entice new ways of seeing, feeling, engaging and moving through the world.

FLUID will coincide with the Midsumma Festival and centres nonbinary and LGBTIQ artists, including Indigenous and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) artists.

COLLAGE YOURSELF 

Thursday 8 April, 6:00pm-7:30pm
 
Come together to create collages that represent and mash-up our own binary experiences and expressions. This online workshop will be led by Peter Waples-Crowe, a Ngarigo visual and performance-based artist, who uses collage to explore their intersecting Indigenous and Queer identities.

All we ask is you come prepared with a collection of pictures, magazines, or newspapers to rip, tear and collage with.
