This exhibition imagines a queer Blak Futurism that celebrates Blak bodies and Blak joy through a site of respite, reflection, and relaxation. The artists collaboratively construct an oasis-like installation that captures the essence of queer Blak sanctuaries, celebrating waterways and Country. Placid in Play places a strong emphasis on creating spaces where queer Mob can unite, coexist, and convalesce.
Artists: Caleb Thaiday (Cerulean), Elijah Money (Mora Money), and Stone Turner (Stone Motherless Cold)
