The Victorian Pride Centre is thrilled to stage identity, adornment, transformation as the inaugural exhibition for the Pride Gallery, the only purpose-built gallery in Australia celebrating LGBTIQ+ culture and artists.
The Victorian Pride Centre is Australia’s first purpose-built LGBTIQ+ Centre. Located
at 79 – 81 Fitzroy Street, St Kilda, the Pride Centre will house major LGBTIQ+
organisations and provide a social and cultural venue for the LGBTIQ+ and wider
communities.Curator Mish Eisen brings Indigenous LGBTIQ+ artists Jenna Lee, Clint Lingard,
Paul McCann, Dylan Mooney and Peter Waples-Crowe together to create identity,
adornment, transformation. The exhibition explores notions around discovery of
identity, resonance of adornment and bearings of transformation from a LGBTIQ+Indigenous contemporary lens.
