Socially Engaged Art Salon (SEAS) exhibition, “Intersections”, would like to give the stage again for the life experiences of LGBTQIA+ people who face further discrimination and marginalisation due to their ethnicity, disability, refugee and asylum seeker status, poverty, religion, age or other factors. We are particularly interested in including works which depict how the colonial legacy and racism still affects LGBTQIA+ lives as well as Afrofuturistic works.
For this exhibition, we seek either short films or web/digital/graphic, photography works and poems. In particular, we are interested to receive projects that were done as a series of between 5 to 10 images, research and/or narrative-based works and mixed media work that include images and audio. An example of the suggested formate can be viewed here: https://www.gmdart.com/lockdown-dairies.
The exhibition will take place online where each selected artist will have their own page with their artworks, a bio and links to their website and social media.
The exhibition will on August 8th with an online event to which selected artists will be invited to talk about their work.
