Exhibition Launch: HI VIS

Join us for the exhibition launch of HI VIS.

HI VIS explores dancing and dressing as fabulous forms of empowerment.

Each of the artists demonstrate control through the spectacle of dance and dress. By being irresistible to look at, the artists can control an onlooker’s attention and push them to engage a range of complex political ideas while still being entertaining to watch.

The artists and their artworks are fabulous, but they are also using these art forms because they create a necessary form of defence. Through being impossible to ignore, they create a defence against violence, a defence against forgetting troubling histories, and a defence against not being seen at all.
