Hannah Brontë’s videos, banners and large-scale installations are spirited affirmations of matriarchy and collective power. Hers is a prismatic thinking through which she captures the seasons of her life and the rhythms and cycles of human and natural succession.
Neon Oracle, curated by Stella Rosa McDonald, considers the intentional movement of energy between Brontë’s practice and her communities and the importance of language to her work over the past decade. The exhibition presents a survey of Brontë’s work alongside new works made cooperatively with members of Twenty10, a NSW-based LGBTIQA+ service for young people aged 12-25.
Twenty10 provide a broad range of free, accessible mental health and psychosocial support programs, as well as creative and digital programs, events and safe spaces so that LGBTIQA+ people of NSW are secure, connected and celebrated.
Presented in partnership with Twenty10 and the UTS Centre for Social Justice and Inclusion.
