Meridian - a curved line that encompasses the Earth. A common thread that links disparate and far-flung places and spaces. At Midsumma we represent a broad community, with differing lives, loves and values, but a common thread connects us all. The artists we are presenting work in differing disciplines and focus on different aspects of gender, identity and society. But what unites can be greater than what divides.
Midsumma is presenting artists from different artistic disciplines. Some practices examine and redefine the notions of identity and gender, exploring the social and political constructs that dominate our society, while others utilise materiality and the process of making to conceptualise their ideas with the possibility of creating new knowledge.
