To the inclusion of all others

Artists include Akil Ahamat , Amira Hajar, Christine Dean, Del Lumanta, Jeremy Anderson, Joe Brennan, Jonno Revanche , Katherine Corcoran, Leila el Rayes, Leena Riethmuller, Serwah Attafuah, Tarik Ahlip and Tyza Stewart. Coordinated by Nina Dodd and Jonno Revanche

To the inclusion of all others uses the postal survey on marriage equality as an entrance point for reflection and invites artists to consider queer community beyond traditional rituals and behaviours, sparking conversation around the celestiality and potency of sexuality, gender, local history and social commentary. Remixing and reconsidering these norms, artists will reference ceremonies, trinkets, sentimental items and other subtleties as a way to mediate on the ways we sustain each other and in the wake of danger and delegitimisation. A number of public programs will run alongside the exhibition, including an open mic night and community care picnic, providing the opportunity to further unpack a nuanced conversation around Queer and Trans bodies in the wake of political attack.
