Charlotte Allingham, Worthy of Love, 2020, Digital illustration.

When:

19 June – 24 July 2021, Foyer gallery

Details:

Presented by Tuggeranong Arts Centre in collaboration with the ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTQI Network, After explores the intersections of culture, gender, and sexuality, and the ongoing racism, homophobia, and transphobia faced by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTIQA+ community.

This exhibition is being held in conjunction with the performance project, After the Glitz and Glam that is being held in early July. After the Glitz and Glam is a performance and forum that asks: what happens after the curtain closes, the lights go down, and the make-up comes off? Is visibility enough, or is there more work to be done?
