bentART – Celebrating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Questioning (LGBTIQ) visual artists of Australia.


“The theme of bentART exists not in the artworks, but in the people who produce them. The theme exists in all the people who contribute to it – all the people who identify as something other than straight. bentART represents the celebration, support and creativity of the LGBTIQ community. It represents unity, and really, what can compare with that?”  – Amelia Tracey 2017 bentART Exhibition Curator.
