Thanks to all who were able to attend the opening party! It was a full house and we could barely move around the gallery! Time to go back and really take in the Queer Art spanning from ‘78 to present day.
40 YEARS OF QUEER ART:⠀
REBELLION AND SUBVERSION.⠀
Exhibition runs 22nd February to 8th March 2018.⠀
Comber Street Studios⠀

The exhibition highlights the role of queer artists in changing societal attitudes, subverting the politics around LGBTIQ and contributing to queer culture.⠀
Art works featured include those by renowned photographers such as William Yang and C. Moore Hardy and contemporary artists such as Lisa Anderson, Kim Leutwyler and @tinafiveash . There is the opportunity to see works by artists David McDiarmid and Frances Phoenix, who contributed to the first Mardi Gras exhibition at Watters Gallery in Sydney in 1978; as well as to be introduced to lesser-known, later generations of queer artists.⠀ The exhibition has been curated by artists who participated in the first Mardi Gras.⠀ #artsagenda#MardiGras40@sydneymardigras@comberstreetstudios
