‘HERE&NOW20: Perfectly Queer’ examines how artists draw on history and their own lived experiences to create artwork that reflects on what it means to be queer. Curator Brent Harrison says that ‘In addition to supporting local queer artists, the exhibition will also open a dialogue with Perth communities about the experiences of queer people and the issues we face.’
Benjamin Bannan, Nathan Beard, Janet Carter, Lill Colgan, Jo Darbyshire, Brontë Jones, Andrew Nicholls and Colin Smith use their work as a means to problematise binaries, to explore sites of desire and to provide safe spaces for communities.
