HEART is Boomalli's 2021 Mardi Gras Exhibition, curated by Dennis Golding.
Opening 19 February 2021
"HEART invites artists to expand their creative practice in developing new ideas and reflections relating to the heart.
These current times are challenging with the experiences of living in a world-wide pandemic, rising movements including Black Lives Matter, and the ravages of climate change. Whilst this exhibition is not a direct response to these themes and movements, it allows artists from both LGBTQI and First Nations communities to reflect, heal, celebrate and empower their histories and lived experiences.
Heart encourages the artists to find within their practice and within themselves what matters most to them, and to explore how identity and culture is expressed from the heart. This is a celebration of lofe, a reflection of history and an opportunity to enhance the voices of First Nations and LGBTQI peoples," - Dennis Golding
