Over the rainbow: Works by LGBTQ2S+ Artists

This installation celebrates the rainbow lens of LGBTQ2S+ artists with a presentation of a range of works produced over several decades. Videos, photographs, installations and various types of ephemera highlight the creativity and fortitude of the many gendered and diversely sexualized group who self-identify with pride. Artists speak to and act out their message with humour and gravitas, challenging the “norm” with non-binary realities that fluidly erase strict demarcations of difference. Trans-forming with a multiple pronoun eye to queer, these works cross over identities, races and ethnicities to embrace diversity and inclusion.
