Gallery Opening: Soft Edges

Exhibition and Shows

25 Jun 2021 to 23 Jul 2021 Once Only Event

Platform Arts is excited to present collaborative show, SOFT EDGES, from the curatorial and artistic direction of multidisciplinary artist and curator, and Platform LAB alumni, George Goodnow.

SOFT EDGES is a multimodal exhibition that reimagines road signs and streetscapes. It explores how objects that assert order and authority can be made tender, and transformed to tell different narratives from queer and femme perspectives. Rigid structures are softened, directions are complicated, frequencies are bent, and notions of friendship, gender and orientation are explored.

The exhibition combines the work of George Goodnow, Carla Zimbler, Aphir and Dandrogyny, working across sculpture, video, sound and performance. They come together in a hi-vis, audio visual installation which promotes interdisciplinary collaboration and the importance of making space for nuance, emotion, cooperation and the uncomfortable within predominantly male dominated fields.

SOFT EDGES is co-curated by Amber Smith and George Goodnow and will include a special guest performance vernissage event on Sunday 18 July, 5.30PM – 6.30PM.

SOFT EDGES opens Friday 25 June until Friday 23 July
