Midsumma is Australia's premier queer arts and cultural organisation, bringing together a diverse mix of LGBTQIA+ artists, performers, communities and audiences.
In 2021, the Metro Tunnel Creative Program and Midsumma Festival collaborated to showcase the strength and adaptability of our artists and culture makers. To commemorate Midsumma’s history, artists were invited to take a trip down "memory lane" and provide a visual representation of some of their favourite Midsumma memories.
Participating artists: Tomboy Bill, Matthew Chan, Chelle Destefano, Selwyn Hoffmann, Matto Lucas, Kyle KM, KJ, Suzanne Phoenix, Caoife Power, Lucy Weir.
The groups shimmied and sashayed through the streets, grooving past our Memory Lane exhibition on Franklin Street as part of Midsumma Festival, as well as the State Library station sheds, exploring some of the hidden pockets of the area.
