Peter Waples-Crowe (Ngarigo)
04–12 May Free
Pulima Arts Festival

insideOUT is a binary-blurring experience constructed by Ngarigo artist Peter Waples-Crowe. This exhibition demolishes barriers by constructing new spaces to interrogate the meeting points of where Blak and queer cultures intersect.

A visual showcase of Peter’s distinctive collage works, as well as new experimentations with animation, fashion and live-art activation, insideOUT builds space for queer and Blak people, stories and experiences to be held and encountered. Peter engages collaboration as a strategy to explore themes of being simultaneously on both the inside, and the outside.

‘I’m inside the culture because I’m Aboriginal; I’m outside because I’m gay. I’m inside gay culture because I’m gay, I’m outside because I’m Aboriginal.’ – Peter Waples-Crowe

The exhibition will be accompanied by pop-up shows from Taiwanese performance artist Dondon Hounwn, who will deliver deep spiritual healing rituals throughout YIRRAMBOI. View more events in the YIRRAMBOI x Pulima program.
