Queer artists have long understood the power of collage as a tool for manipulating the singular narratives that so often exclude them.

"Misfit" examines the idea of collage as a medium especially susceptible to embodying queer experience. Presenting works by Australian and international artists who engage with performance, video, text, photography, textile, painting, paper and sound, "Misfit" looks at how the radically reassembled can veer us closer to unseen truths, productive ambiguities and powerful positions of resistance.

Artists: Tony Albert, Archie Barry, Gary Carsley, Brian Fuata, Deborah Kelly, Del Lumanta, Sarah Rodigari, Tejal Shah, Tyza Stewart, Guanyu Xu, Paul Yore

Curator: Scott Elliot
