Join Arts Project Australia and West Space to celebrate the closing of the joint fandom-focused exhibition Sincerely Yours next weekend.
There’ll be an artist talk with curator Sophia Cai and artists Danny Lyons and Dylan Goh, followed by me, Natasha Hertanto and Diego Ramirez reading our commissioned fanfic. Then K-pop dance group AO crew will bust some moves and the bar will be open.
Saturday 5 March 2022 2 pm to 4 pm (exhibition open 12 pm to 4 pm) Collingwood Yards 35 Johnston Street, Collingwood VIC 3066 free – no bookings required – Auslan interpreted
A couple of months ago, curator Sophia Cai asked me to pen some fanfiction for Sincerely Yours, an exhibition in collaboration with West Space x Arts Project Australia that explores fannish love and devotion.
I don’t know if anyone is ready for this, least of all me, but next Friday I’m making my fanfiction debut at Footscray Community Arts Centre as part of the Smut: Queer Erotic Fan Fiction Salon curated by Sissy Screens.
Here’s a sneak peek of my piece – can you guess who the primary pairing is? (Clue: It’s a crossover fic.)
The event is part of Midsumma Festival and it also features Vidya Rajan, Nkechi Anele, Tali Polichtuk, Zoey Dawson, Alistair Baldwin, Ruby Slippers, Wilk Crate and Zoe Terakes. Auslan interpreted. It’s gunna be hot and nerdy!
