Midsumma 2018: The Sub-committee


Image: The Sub-committee: Arie Rain Glorie, Jake Preval and Bridget Balodis.

Midsumma Festival 2018

Presented by Kingston Arts, The Sub-committee collective consisting of artists Arie Rain Glorie, Bridget Balodis and Jake Preval, has made it their duty to unearth the ‘gaybourhood’ within Moorabbin for Midsumma Festival 2018.

Transforming the galleries into a temporary office over summer, The Sub-committee will map the queer subtext of the local culture; leaving their door open to anyone who may have ideas about how queerness can be defined, located and referenced. It is the Sub-committee's mission to help find better ways for people to understand the complexities of queer visibility through art.

The exhibition opening will include a live art performance by The Sub-committee and their community collaborators at Kingston Arts’ annual Pop Up Bar event.
