With a focus on DJ-ing, performance and contemporary art, Sezzo will draw on her various artistic collaborations to explore the specific atmosphere that defines QPOC party culture.
Advocating for the importance of QPOC (Queer People of Colour) party spaces, DJ Sezzo reflects on the ideas and intentions behind her experiential club nights including Ngāti Kangaru and Precog, whilst positioning these sites and events in the context of contemporary expressions of culture and identity.
Sezzo is a proud Ngāpuhi woman, DJ, writer and curator. She is interested in what it is to be modern Māori and the magic of the club. In 2018 she created the experimental art club night Precog, and in 2019 founded the Māori-Australian art collective Ngāti Kangaru.
Sezzo has played at Palais de Tokyo Galerie (Paris, Fr), Dark Mofo, MONA FOMA, Next Wave Festival, GoMA, Mardi Gras, MCA, IMA, Firstdraft, Falls Festival, and has supported the likes of Justin Shoulder, Moor Mother & Black Quantum Futurism, Klein, Le1f, Cher, Coolio and Charli XCX. Sezzo now lives and works in South Korea.
This conversation is part of ‘Forms of Being Together’, a series of online talks, performances and actions presented alongside the exhibition ‘Friendship as a Way of Life’ at UNSW Galleries.
