Catch Whitecliffe Master of Fine Arts supervisor Richard Orjis take part in the Queer Pavilion project during Auckland Pride Festival alongside artists Ary Jansen, Daniel John Corbett Sanders, Forest V kapo, Jaimee Stockman-Young, Layne Waerea Mahonri & Hobbs, Megha Pashe Akshon, Micheal McCabe, Sione Monu, val smith, Whaea & The Rumble.
The Queer Pavilion will reside in the Rangipuke / Albert Park for six days during the Auckland Pride Festival. Queer and gender-diverse artists will create and exhibit new works that respond to and activate the Park, with a series of free public activities as well as offering social spaces for kai, coffee and korero.
The project began life as a discussion about bttm methodology, an approach to art-making, pedagogy and kinship driven by the tenets of CONNECTIVITY, PLEASURE & SUB-VERSION. The Queer Pavilion is positioned from below and behind. It is primarily connective, counter, open, slow, temporary, ecologically aware and pleasure-leisure seeking. It is an invitation to come along, hang out, lie around, eat or just fall asleep…
Presented by Wilde Projects, with support from Auckland Council, AUT, Artspace Aotearoa.
