Across The Bridge

Developed through young people's own experiences, this is an intimate exhibition about identity and sexuality beyond labels
Cross the bridge and settle into a cosy, immersive exhibition of new artworks made in dialogue between young LGBTQIA+ international students and young, local artists.
Experience; Cinderella and the game of hard choices. The poetic destruction of an ideal self. Traditional flowers growing in new soils. Clay figures musing the dilemmas of the self. Performance that parodies the rules of ‘nature’ as it crosses into the fluid space of becoming. Photography that distils the essence of it all!
In June 2021, SIGNAL and Story is Connection sought expressions of interest from LGBTQIA+ artists of all disciplines aged 18 to 25 to collaborate with international students. Over 6 months, 5 collaborative pairs participated in creative storytelling workshops with experienced community cultural development practitioner, Catherine Simmonds OAM. During lockdowns, they met regularly via Zoom to share their works in development. The result is 5 new artworks and enduring friendships.
Have we crossed the bridge? Let’s enjoy the bridge, enjoy looking at the water, and dancing on the bridge.
