Drag queens of Bendigo celebrated in new Living Arts Space exhibition
Creativity, passion and frivolity are captured in a new Living Arts Space exhibition celebrating local drag queens.
Fierce: Drag Queens of Bendigo brings together a collection of stunning costumes and accessories from local drag queens.
Visitor Services Manager Jemma Docherty said the exhibition was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the creativity and artistry of performing drag queens in Greater Bendigo.
“The City of Greater Bendigo would like to thank the artists for contributing such a fantastic collection to the exhibition,” Ms Docherty.
“The exhibition is part of Bendigo Pride Festival’s exciting program which celebrates, explores and promotes diversity and inclusion with particular focus on LGBTIQA+ communities and people.
“Greater Bendigo is an inclusive and welcoming city and this exhibition builds on the City’s wider acknowledgement and support for the LGBTQIA+ communities.
“Fierce allows people to truly appreciate the time, detailed skill and creativity required to make each costume piece and the accessories that go with them.
“Most of the costumes for the exhibition are made by the performers themselves and are displayed to provide a 360-degree view of the outfits and accessories worn.”
Fierce is free to attend and open until Sunday April 24, 2022.
The Living Arts Space is in the Bendigo Visitor Centre, 51-67 Pall Mall. Open 9am to 5pm daily (except Christmas Day).
