PROJECT SPACE / 26 July to 17 August (Opening Thursday 25 July 5–7pm)
Both Australia and Taiwan have experienced polarising debates around the issue of same sex or equal marriage. Following a Constitutional Court ruling, Taiwan is set to join the list of countries with marriage equality by May 2019, and will become the first country in Asia to do so. This exhibition will explore how queer artists in both Australia and Taiwan have responded to these intense moments of debate, struggle and change. Each work in the exhibition will have been created during this climate of heightened contestation of queer rights and equality. Featuring collage, video, installation, textile, painting and photography, the exhibition is a diverse look at how artists have both overtly and covertly engaged with queer themes in response to their current social contexts.
Queer Nations is being presented in connection with Equal Love in Spare Room.
