“I’m inside the culture because I’m Aboriginal; I’m outside because I’m gay. I’m inside gay culture because I’m gay, I’m outside because I’m Aboriginal.”
– Peter Waples-Crowe to ABC, 2018.
InsideOUT is a binary-blurring experience constructed by Ngarigo artist Peter Waples-Crowe. Presented by the Koorie Heritage Trust, this solo exhibition demolishes barriers by constructing new spaces to interrogate the meeting points of where Aboriginal and queer cultures intersect.
A visual showcase of Waples-Crowes’ distinctive collage works, as well as new experimentations with animation, fashion and live-art activation, InsideOUT builds space for queer and blak people, stories and experiences to be held and encountered. Waples-Crowe engages collaboration as a strategy to explore themes of being simultaneously on both the inside, and the outside.
This exhibition runs until July 28, 2019.
