ACMI, Midsumma Festival and Queertech.io present

Queertech.io IRL Screening and Online Discussion

Screening & talk

Marginalised voices are brought to the forefront in this live and online exhibition of works by artists identifying as both queer and disabled.

Curated by the Queertech.io artist collective and Midsumma Festival, these selected works will be premiered online via exhibition on the Queertech.io website and live at a special screening at ACMI.

Now more than ever, queer voices are vital to a continued socio-political discourse surrounding representation in a digital landscape. Queertech.io showcases a broad cross-section of the innovative, poignant and queer-as-hell works emerging from diverse queer communities.

Like queer voices, disabled voices are marginalised, and queer disabled voices even more so. Disabled artists are often overlooked in major landmark presentations, and the discourse around accessibility of queer-led events must be brought to the forefront. The queer community has many disabled members, some of whom have historically felt left out of Midsumma Festival events. This project highlights these artists with an online and physical show giving queer artists with a disability the opportunity to shine in a keynote Midsumma Festival presentation at ACMI.
