Guildford Lane Gallery is delighted to welcome back Midsumma. This year, the festival brings a curated program to the gallery with Queer City Lane Dwellers, a showcase of work including visual arts as well as musical, spoken and dramatic performance.

Visitors can look forward to works such as Janice Appleton’s ‘There is something I need to tell you’, a re-invented bedroom telling the story of one of Australia’s few legally married same-sex couples. In ‘My Pop Life’, Michael Brady offers a diary reading exposing the thoughts and feelings of a pop-obsessed eighties teen, while Brad Gunn presents ‘Characters of the Jungle-Seed’, a sculpture series based on the surreal creatures of the original screenplay ‘Jungle-seed’. Also, in a much-anticipated series of performance, David Rogers-Smith will sing songs from his debut album, ‘In My Life’.
