On Screen, In the Flesh | Midsumma

A virtual and physical exhibition, On Screen, In the Flesh interrogates the digital queer experience.

Artists include Alex Cuffe, Emma Berry & Liv Moriarty, Nunzio Madden, Evan Nilsson, Brooke Van Der Linden & Lou Ellen, Phil Soliman, Arthur Nyakuengama, and Jamie Harrop.

The exhibition catalogue features a personal essay by Amie Green.

Highlighting the work of several Narrm based emerging artists, the exhibition will shed a new light on the COVID-19 experience and how intimacy can be achieved through various digital experiences.In an era of digitisation and social media, many queers of today discovered and announced their queer identities on the internet. Some played and developed themselves online whilst unable to in their non-digital lives. On Screen, In the Flesh uncovers these experiences, of the queers of today who once upon a time, uncovered their queer identities online.

Arguing that although they can be separate, often one's “truth” was initially presented online. As part of Midsumma Festival 2021, Trocadero presents On Screen, In the Flesh, curated by Zara Sully.
