Join the Gus Fisher Gallery on Valentine’s Day as they celebrate the opening of their first exhibition for 2020, Queer Algorithms. All are welcome. The New Zealand AIDS Foundation will be onsite to discuss the state of HIV in Aotearoa today and the ongoing community art project, The New Zealand AIDS Memorial Quilt.

Algorithms are problem-solving operations. They are a set of rules that help us calculate, decode and define. But what happens when these set of rules are ‘queered’? Gus Fisher Gallery presents a timely and relevant show, tapping into pressing issues facing local and global queer communities.

This exhibition brings together a plurality of voices where identities are understood as always multifarious and in flux. Assuming a polyvocal and intersectional standpoint, Queer Algorithms features artists whose artworks have and are in the process of reconfiguring new algorithms for change against continued systems of exclusion.

Gus Fisher Gallery is proud to be working with the New Zealand AIDS Foundation and Ending HIV on the presentation of individual panels from the National Aids Memorial Quilt as part of the exhibition. Queer Algorithms includes artworks by ground-breaking artists never seen before in Aotearoa working in the mediums of video, installation and internet art.
