Queer Passages

27 March –  13 April

Matt Huppatz adopts assemblage as an artistic and theoretical tool that provides insight into labyrinthine qualities of queer identity. His work reflected upon queer masculine expression in the Duchampian tradition, connecting contemporary subjective experience with broader artistic and subcultural histories.

25 May – 16 June

Christopher Boha

Christopher Boha’s research questioned what it means to belong in a place and focuses on the role of memory, narrative and hands-on making in rebuilding feelings of belonging. Ultimately, it came to understand that belonging, like identity, is fluid rather than fixed.

This exhibition brought together the work of five committed artists who have contributed to a long history of visual arts knowledge exchange over the last forty years.
