MELT may be overflowing with fantastic shows, but the festival isn't just about the performance side of things. Simply take a look at the walls of the Brisbane Powerhouse, and you'll see what we mean. For the duration of the May fest, their foyers will play host to an array of MELT art pieces.
In Unique Exotic, the work of artist Hillary Green is once again thrust into the spotlight, capturing Brisbane's queer arts scene alongside her own self portraits. Sophie Reid-Singer's The Cave operates as a single-player game, questioning the functioning of storytelling and identity. Explorations of queer relationships, depictions of men revealing their pain through tears and larger-than-life images of LGBTI+ artists also feature. Yes, this creative showcase lives up to its aims, highlighting not only artistry, but diversity too.
