This exhibition explores how queer artists in both Australia and Taiwan have responded to these intense moments of debate, struggle and change. Each work in the exhibition has been created during this climate of heightened contestation of queer rights and equality. Featuring collage, video, installation, textile, painting and photography, the exhibition is a diverse look at how artists have both overtly and covertly engaged with queer themes in response to their current social contexts.

Queer Nations is being presented in connection with Equal Love in Spare Room.
