About The Exhibition 

City of Newcastle is proud to feature LGBTIQ+ artists at the Night Galleries in Kuwumi Place to celebrate Sydney WorldPride, a global festival that has been staged since 2000. 

Newcastle Art Gallery has partnered with curator Jasmine Fletcher, founder of local community organisation Queer and Now, to develop Inside/Out, an exhibition that brings together works by local artists with those from the Gallery's collection.  

Inside/Out speaks to the dichotomy of invisible and visible queer experience. The exhibition celebrates the central role of art in rendering visible the full spectrum of queer experience.
