PINKWASHING: SPIN ME OUT!

Event Details

Richard Harding’s new series was derived from an SBS News broadcast from January 2018, as Australia geared up for the 2018 Gay Pride March in Melbourne and the 40th Anniversary of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. Harding’s artworks mingle images of celebration with archive footage of targeted attacks on people of difference to explore how discrimination has been experienced by LGBTIQ people here and across the world.

‘Pinkwashing’ is a term coined in the 1990s which describes the deliberate positioning of people, places and things as ‘gay-friendly’ by political powers, in order to appear progressive.
