Queertech.io IRL Screening & Discussion

Register

An online/offline exhibition

Presented by Midsumma Festival's AND/OR program, ACMI and Queertech.io.

QueerTech.io presents an online/offline exhibition of artworks created by artists identifying as both queer and disabled. Curated by the Queertech.io artist collective and Midsumma Festival, works selected will be premiered online via exhibition on the queertech.io website and offline at a special screening at ACMI, Federation Square.

Now more than ever, queer voices are vital to a continued socio-political discourse surrounding representation in a digital landscape. Queertech.io showcases a broad cross-section of the innovative, poignant and queer-as-hell works emerging from diverse queer communities. Disabled voices, like queer voices, are marginalised, and queer disabled voices even more. Disabled artists are often overlooked in major landmark presentations and the discourse around accessibility of queer led events needs to be brought to the forefront. The queer community has many disabled members, some who have historically felt left out of Midsumma Festival events. This project highlights these artists with an online and physical show giving queer artists with a disability the opportunity to shine in a keynote Midsumma Festival presentation at ACMI.

 

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
