Misplaced and Dangling
Pop culture and art history meet euphemisms and LGBTQIA+ themes in this free exhibition at Artsite Gallery.
February 28, 2020
Artists Jamie Cole and Murat Urlali use euphemisms and visual linguistics to challenge societal rhetoric, politics and stigma in Misplaced and Dangling, currently showing at Camperdown's Artsite Galleries. Part of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2020 celebrations, the exhibition addresses ways of moving forward while still reflecting on the past.
Cole's pop art-inspired works are bright and powerful, using a mix of collage, comic and stencil-art styles to cover everything from first loves to discrimination towards people with HIV. Urlali, on the other hand, draws on ancient Persian enamel techniques in his kitsch and overtly camp representations of the city of Rome.
The exhibition is open from 11am–5pm every Thursday to Sunday until Sunday, March 1.
