Queer artist exhibition at Aotea Centre

Tue 23 Oct 2007 In: New Zealand Daily News

A new exhibition at Auckland's Aotea Centre will showcase painting, photography and sculpture from a group of local queer artists. A painting by Dr. Welby Ings The Queers in Tertiary Education and Research (QuTER) network will present works from LGBT artists who have done or are currently involved in Queer Research at a Tertiary Institution. The inaugural exhibition "considers and represents personal queer visions of the participating artists," says QuTER curator Xavier Radić. "This small but visionary group endeavour to promote the differing views that inspire queer art in Oceania today through research and education." Each artist has written a short accompanying piece about themselves and their art. "We trust you enjoy our art, and will take time to reflect on our stories," says Radić. QuTER was formed in 2004 by a small group of LGBT academics from Auckland tertiary education institutions. The network aims to encourage and support queer educators, researchers and students, to provide mentorship for queer staff and students, to support rigorously designed queer research and to be a watchdog for erroneous reporting of research in the media. QuTER's art exhibition begins on Thursday 25 October and runs through until Sunday 11 November at the Aotea Gallery at Auckland's Aotea Centre.     Ref: QuTER (m)
