Dear friends of Petlamb,

I would love to see you at the opening WE ARE HERE, curated by Angela Bailey from the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives.

WE ARE HERE is part of the 2018 Midsumma Festival happening from 14 January to 4 February. The exhibition is presented in conjunction with State Library Victoria, Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives and Midsumma Festival.

In recognition of almost 50 years of the Lesbian, Gay and Trans political movement in Australia and 40th Anniversary of ALGA's dedicated archives, five contemporary visual artists have created new works drawing on archival material from the State Library Victoria and the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives.

WE ARE HERE features Susan Maco Forrester, Peter Waples-Crowe, Briony Galligan, Archie Barry and myself.

So come along to the opening (6pm Thursday 18 January, 2018) at State Library Victoria. It will be great to see your there.

Love Petlamb x
