Human 3.0 - Mardi Gras exhibition launch at Ambush Gallery

Curated and produced by aMBUSH Gallery and presented in collaboration with Central Park Mall and Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, HUMAN 3.0 included a retrospective of EVERY Mardi Gras poster from our festival’s past, as well as new conceptual designs from some of Australia’s foremost artists.

Two very different photographic bodies of work also featured: Nicholas Contrera’s Extra Ordinary – Trans Life depicting high-profile transgender adults, and Sarah Wong’s sensitive photo series, Inside Out: Portraits of Cross-Gender Children, capturing the ‘inner essence’ of transgender children. Sydney’s artist-run collective, HAARD (Homo Art and Recreation Division), will exhibit diverse works of twelve of their young gay male members.

The free exhibition was launched on Friday 5 February 2016 and opened by Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras CEO Michele Bauer, with entertainment from Sydney DJ duo L‘OASIS. Photos on this page by Matt Akersten.
