Event description

Description

Balimbing - Filipino Queerness is a photographic art exhibition portraying the unique queer and multicultural LGBTQI community of Tacloban City in the Philippines.

Artist Gregory Lorenzutti brings to Australia a collection of photographs in daring multi-color that captures the intimate lives of queer Filipinos steeped in faith, resilience, survival, family and spectacle queerness.

Photographed during the Santo Niño fiesta in Tacloban over three years, ‘Balimbing' ("star-fruit" in Waray dialect) is the culmination of long conversations and personal stories shared during the preparations for a momentous Filipino celebration, which prompted deep recollections of the photographer's own upbringing in Latin America.

This exhibition unfolds the complex social relations in a place where faith, popular traditions, colonialism, gender fluidity and love can co-exist.

The special launch event will feature an incredible performance by Bhenji Ra, Justin Shoulder and Caroline Garcia. The pre-launch meet the artists talk will be hosted by Nathan Scolaro, Editor of Dumbo Feather.

Please register for the meet the artists and/or the launch event.

Meet the artists 5pm - 5.30pm

Launch 6pm - 8pm

The exhibition will run from Wednesday 13 - Sunday 17 December 12pm-5pm.

PRESENTED BY MAPPING MELBOURNE 2017.
