All That We Are is an exhibition of the works of six LGBTQ2+ artists who live and work on the Sunshine Coast. The exhibition includes a wonderful range of sculpture, installation, painting, drawing, assemblage and ceramic works, each raising questions about freedom, identity and acceptance in our contemporary moment.
As LGBTQ2+ people, from where do we draw our strength in the face of adversity? What does it mean to be “queer,” and why is our identity so important to us that we are willing to risk potential harm to be and express who we are? What else are we willing to risk to live an authentic life? Is the freedom and acceptance that comes from living an openly gay life really matter when there is more to our identity than just being “queer?”
The exhibition All That We Are will try to answer these questions as we collectively examine the very human process of finding the strength to be and express who we truly are and live lives free from fear and constraint.
