STAUNCH foregrounds queerness, exposing the diversity of possibilities that reside within Aboriginal identities. The exhibition presents a curated collection of work created by queer Aboriginal contemporary visual artists, presented alongside responses from four Aboriginal poets and against the backdrop of a previously unheard soundscape. STAUNCH celebrates Blak liberation found in ideas, in love and in togetherness. It is curated by Ngarrindjeri, Kaurna and Italian writer and artist Dominic Guerrera.
