WHY

Starting with over 100 artists and with artworks from 1900 to now, this evolving platform seeks to represent the diversity and reach of queer Australian art in its myriad forms.

Since coming together in 2019, Kink has been researching and connecting with artists, communities, arts institutions, curators, writers, art historians, and estates from across the continent to establish what they describe as a “living archive of LGBTQIA+ arts practice”.
