Bloodlines is multi art form exhibition which honours and worships legendary artists lost to HIV/AIDS. A loving tribute to the many influential voices silenced by the HIV/AIDS epidemic of the 1980s and 90s.
The Huxleys work evokes the colourful rebellious and creative spirit of these queer saints. Outwardly LGBTIQA+ artists that helped shift the worlds of queer art and culture into new realms. The work pays a heartfelt debt to artists who paved the way and informed and inspired the practices of The Huxleys and countless other artists working today.
Utilising their skills of costume design, performance and photography The Huxleys work is designed as a joyous sparkling séance, celebrating queer excellence. Interpreting each artist's influence and oeuvre in a uniquely Huxley fashion.
The exhibition curated by Jacob Boehme will feature large scale photographic work, video art, music, and a huge queer performative celebration.
