A Matter of Time

26th March - 28th April

WHEN : 26th March – 28th April
WHERE : Brisbane Powerhouse

The Brisbane Powerhouse and Heather Faulkner present the exhibition: A Matter of Time. A documentary project that crosses the boundaries of time, politics and prejudice to tell the stories of eight Queensland lesbians.

A Matter of Time investigates the experiences of eight lesbians who lived in Queensland during the more socio-politically conservative mid-to-late-twentieth-century and how they interpret that experience to have informed their lives today. Since the end of the Joh Bjelke-Petersen government, conditions for LBGTIQ-identified Queenslanders have improved but remain a tenuous arrangement.

As the struggle for rights continues, it is important to accrue a historical understanding and of the experiences of those who found themselves existing outside of the ‘norm.’ Some led double-lives, some hid in remote pockets of far north Queensland, while others lived openly, in spite of implied consequences.
