About this Event

Join guide Jo Aigus for a deaf-led tour of Peter Waples-Crowe: PRIDE.

ACE will be providing afternoon tea, attendees are invited to stay for tea and coffee.

An unapologetic celebration, PRIDE brings Aboriginal queer visibility to the fore and highlights Peter’s dedication to community.

Working across drawing, collage, sculpture and moving image, Waples-Crowe’s practice is informed by over 25 years experience as a community health worker within Aboriginal and LGBTQIA2+ health, as well as his personal experience as an adopted child, and reconnection with his Ngarigo heritage. His work is a deep commentary on the world as a contested site for his multiple identities.

Curated by Ngarrindjeri, Kaurna and Italian writer Dominic Guerrera and ACE’s Artistic Director, Patrice Sharkey, PRIDE will feature Waples-Crowe’s key works Ngarigo queen – Cloak of queer visibility (2018) and Ngaya (I Am) (2022).

As part of the exhibition, Waples-Crowe is mentoring three local emerging Aboriginal artists: Alfred Lowe (Arrernte), Tyberius Larking (Mirning) and Jayda Wilson (Gugada, Wirangu).

In presenting Waples-Crowe’s work alongside that of the three mentee artists’, PRIDE is a defiant statement about standing up and representing yourself and your Mob. As exhibition co-curator, Dominic Guerrera, says:

“It’s the colours of survival, the attitude of punk and a deep love of community – Blak and queer, we have always been here."
