Presenting Australian LGBTQ+ artists across generations, this exhibition considers how the community narrate their histories—how voices are celebrated, how the queer community shift otherwise heteronormative readings of history and information.

Moving across generations, from the late 70s through to now, these artists come together in a celebration of queer community, and consider the ways in which stories are passed down, how lives are remembered.

From Amazon Acres, a female-only commune of the 70s and 80s, to capturing moments of queer Indigenous joy in the 90s and portraits of contemporary queer bodies, the exhibition reflects on the impact and ongoing importance of queer ancestors and connections across generations.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
