2019 marks 50 years since the Stonewall uprising and our exhibition 'We are our own story' explores the personal struggles and triumphs of the Australian LGBTQI community. This exhibition is proudly hosted by Clifford Chance and J.P. Morgan.
'We are our own story' features 12 artists including:
- Kim Leutwyler, third-time finalist in the prestigious Archibald art prize as well as being a finalist in the Sulman and Churchie national art prizes, as well as the Portia Geach Memorial Award.
- Guy James Whitworth is an award-winning artist known for his activism as he is for his art, with previous exhibitions provoking observations around LGBTQI inequalities, social justice and community-engagement.
- Samuel Luke Beatty is an emerging artist who uses storytelling and the metaphor of space exploration across graphic narratives to discuss complexities of gender identity in relation to his own experiences as a transgender man.
'We are our own story' will be presented by Dolly Diamond, international cabaret and comedy act, who over the last decade has lent her face and name to raise public awareness around major Australian campaigns and in support of many causes.
Clifford Chance is a proud recipient of Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI) Silver Status for LGBTI Workplace Inclusion.
