Midsumma: Never a Crime Exhibition
Never a Crime Exhibition
Healing wounds of past injustice
This photographic exhibition of portraits by Lisa White (The Social Photographer) explores men's experiences of homosexual law reform, Victoria's expungement scheme and the apology from Premier Daniel Andrews. Produced in partnership with Alice's Garage, a national initiative empowering LGBTI elders, portrait subjects are captured alongside or wearing masks made to represent their experiences of the reforms. Crafted by the subjects, these masks are powerful symbols of protection, celebration and personal passage. ‘Never a Crime’ contributes to healing wounds of past injustices and affirms homosexuality as an equal way of being.
Presented by Midsumma Festival and Alice's Garage in association with Abbotsford Convent.
- Celebrate the exhibition opening on Sunday 21 January, 5 – 8pm.
- Join Anna Brown (Human Rights Law Centre) in conversation with participants from ‘Never a Crime’ on Sunday 4 February at 2pm.
- Presented by Midsumma Festival and Alice's Garage in association with Abbotsford Convent.
