Kim Leutwyler exhibition as recipient of the ANZ + Sydney Mardi Gras Community Grant

16 February 2021

As recipient of the ANZ + Sydney Mardi Gras Community Grant, Kim Leutwyler will exhibit a painting and augmented reality exhibition portraying people from across the LGBTQIA+ communities at Nanda\Hobbs coinciding with the Mardi gras Festival.

At first sight, attendees will be greeted with several oil paintings and tapestries in the gallery. They can then immerse themselves in an augmented reality experience using smartphones or tablets. Imagery and sound will float in the room around the paintings, including video interviews with the portrait sitters, still images of important moments from their lives, time-lapses of the portraits being painted, audio soundscapes and more. Leutwyler’s ‘sitters’ each engage with the politics of identity, community and activism in their own unique way.
