Exhibition – Deborah Kelly: CREATION

Sat 24 February - Sun 21 April

Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) presents Deborah Kelly:CREATION – a queer insurrectionary science fiction climate change religion, unfurling through years of collaborations across generations, identities, artforms and sites.

About CREATION
In collaborating with marginalised communities, CREATION confronts climate crisis and truth decay with a crowd-sourced faith drawn from practical politics, mysticism and collectivity. Through cross-disciplinary projects, public brainstorms and participatory performances, this religion evolves before our very eyes.

CREATION at BRAG manifests in human encounters through exhibition, performances, and public workshops. The exhibition presents a range of work spanning video, animation, photography, music, digital collage, costume, and textiles by instigating artist Deborah Kelly and artistic leaders SJ Norman (Liturgy), Angela Goh (dance), Lex Lindsay (composer), James L King (costumier), Stereogamous (dance anthem) and Alia Ardon (film). Together, the artists shepherd this new faith through their specific fields.

Opening Friday, 23 February at 6pm – RSVP here OPENING // Deborah Kelly: CREATION | Humanitix
