Poslink Issue 89, Summer 2019 ‘Art & Activism’

As the summer LGBTIQ festival season begins, Poslink considers the interplay between queer art, performance and HIV/AIDS. Our contributors reveal some insights into the National Gallery of Victoria’s summer blockbuster, Haring|Basquiat: Crossing Lines and explore the concept of the term ‘feral’ when engaging audiences through activism at this year’s Midsumma Festival. We also hear a story of living with HIV and finding the strength to speak it.

Living Positive Victoria acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land where we work and live. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders of all communities who also work and live on this land.
