Arcus Pride Art Exhibition 2019

Perth

2019 marks 50 years since the Stonewall Uprising and a half-century of progress for the LGBT+ community, and we have an exceptional and expansive list of artists exhibiting in Perth this year.

Having previously completed a Curatorial Internship at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, Benjamin Bannan has curated a group of gender and sexually diverse artists as a survey of Perth's thriving queer art scene. The exhibition includes Aisyah Sumito who works with printmaking, illustration and sculpture to explore personal narratives and Nathan Beard whose work draws on the influences of his Thai-Australian cultural background, to name just a few.

Clifford Chance is a proud recipient of Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI) Silver Status for LGBTI Workplace Inclusion.

Aisyah Sumito

Aisyah Aaqil Sumito is a Bugis visual artist, curator and community arts facilitator based on Whadjuk Noongar Boodja. They are a co-director at Cool Change Contemporary, studio artist at Paper Mountain, and co-facilitate Belonging with Gabby Loo. Currently they utilise a multidisciplinary approach to making with found materials, photography, writing, printmaking and installation. In doing so, they visually recount personal narratives regarding intercultural influences, mental illness and queerness.

Laura Sikes

Laura Sikes is an emerging Perth based artist working with a diverse range of materials and processes (particularly analogue and digital photographic processes, found objects, and installation) to make work which poses questions regarding the fragility and power of bodies and the oversaturation of images and information.

Nathan Beard

Nathan Beard is a Perth-based interdisciplinary artist whose practice draws upon his Thai-Australian heritage in order to unpack the influences of culture, memory and biography. His work asks what it means to search for and create an authentic sense of identity out of a connection to intimate, personal histories and cultural heritage.
