Presented by Midsumma and PHOTO 2024, in partnership with Creative Victoria’s Go West program, Queer PHOTO Festival of Queer Photography is a first of its kind collaboration comprising artist commissions of large-scale outdoor artworks curated by Brendan McCleary, gallery exhibitions and an interactive public performance program by local and international artists taking place in Footscray, Newport and Werribee across both Midsumma Festival and PHOTO 2024 International Festival of Photography.
Featuring 17 artists, 14 exhibitions, 30 interactive events and 7 locations, Queer PHOTO is a multi-pronged program transforming iconic venues and the streets of the West into a gallery of accessible and highly visible visual artworks from LGBTQIA+ artists.
