the write up is here......
Familiar to warehouses, squats and other informal spaces, ‘Islands in the Stream’ is the first institutional exhibition of work by six young radically queer and transgender artist/activists all with shared histories in Brisbane.
Featuring works such as ‘Boys are Cheats and Liars’ (video) and ‘I’m a F**n Clone (After Ryan Trecartin)’ (textile), the exhibition registers a note of the personal and the regional from within a transglobally networked, radically post-identity politics movement.
Accompanying ‘Islands in the Stream’ is a double-channel video piece by Croatian artist Igor Grubic that takes footage of violent citizen reactions to the first gay-rights marches in Belgrade (2001) and Zagreb (2002) as a choreographic text.
