Brisbane-based artist Callum McGrath utilises screen based media to ‘disidentify’ binary representations of queer male sexuality. His practice disrupts queer representations of sexuality by exploring the in-between space in queer male identity. McGrath looks to queer historical and family narratives to explore the complex relationship between his identity and queer cultural/ lineal inheritances. His practise considers the importance, problems and limitations in inheriting both queer and lineal pasts.
His work has been featured in various group and solo exhibitions including: River Torrens, Green Screen Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane; Passing, West Space, Melbourne; HATCHED, Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, Perth; Rose Tinted, FELTspace, Adelaide; and Site (re) Constructed, Bus Projects, Melbourne. He is a founding co-director of Cut Thumb ARI. McGrath has obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Visual Art) with first class Honours at the Queensland University of Technology (2016) and was awarded the Eyeline Prize for an Outstanding Visual Arts Graduate.
