Please join us for a walk-through led by exhibition curator Richard Perram OAM.

Braving time is a queer exhibition that celebrates the work of artists who identify as part of the Australian LGBTIQA+ community. This significant exhibition has been curated by Richard Perram OAM for the National Art School in celebration of Sydney WorldPride in 2023. The artists represented in the exhibition celebrate the diverse voices of LGBTIQA+ people in contemporary Australia society, reflecting the breath of genders and sexualities within the community, including artists who identify as lesbian, gay, transgender, inter-sex, asexual and non-binary.

The artists present artworks that explore queerness in ways that are direct and indirect through historical and contemporary artworks that are critical, experimental and political, connecting to our contemporary culture. Together these works instigate conversations about queer experience; what it is and what it means to be queer in Australia today.

Richard Perram OAM is an independent curator and former director of Bathurst Regional Art Gallery. His most recent exhibitions have been Liam Benson: Virtue without Stain for Bathurst Regional Art Gallery and Braving Time: Contemporary Art in Queer Australia for the NAS as part of the Sydney WorldPride 2023 Art Festival. He also curated the award winning exhibition The Unflinching Gaze: photo media and the male figure in 2017 at the Bathurst Regional Art Gallery.
