Prejudice, it's not an attractive topic, yet despite an enduring fight against it, remains stubbornly systemic across the globe, permeating every facet of our human existence. It comes in all shapes and sizes, tailored to any generic set of circumstances.
We all have our own stories to tell. The exhibition series, The More Things Change… Parts 1-3 brings together a collection of stories by Queer and Pacific artists who live, like many of us, with prejudice. They are narrated in painted, sculptural and photographic form. They are communicated with love, humour and gravity. They are not victim impact statements, nor are they a condemnation or judgment of others, these stories function as a stocktake of the reality we live in, and purposefully reflect that we believe the fight for equality in all of its forms, is far from over.
This exhibition is part of the Auckland Pride Festival.Bergman Gallery website, Bergman Gallery Instagram, Bergman Gallery Facebook, Bergman Gallery Auckland Linkedin
