Australia-based artist Kim Leutwyler presents her Painting and Augmented Reality exhibition portraying people from across the LGBTQIA+ communities.

At first sight, attendees will be greeted with several oil paintings and tapestries in the gallery. They can then immerse themselves in an augmented reality experience using smartphones or tablets. Imagery and sound will float in the room around the paintings, including video interviews with the portrait sitters, still images of important moments from their lives, time-lapses of the portraits being painted, audio soundscapes and more. Leutwyler’s ‘sitters’ each engage with the politics of identity, community and activism in their own unique way.
