Playing it Straight: A Art Exhibition By Shawn Griffin, Leslie Montgomery and Rhody Chan.
In this thematic project, an assortment of individuals with different sexualities including self-identified heterosexual, homosexual, and bisexual persons were asked to take part in an experiential performance that would be photographed. The prospect of the series is to photographically capture the tension created by couples who are forced into relationships outside of their sexual orientation.
Playing it Straight switches the roles of sexual minorities and majorities in today’s society. Through presenting the photographic documentation of this ‘performance’, we invite viewers to be a part of the project, to reflect upon their attitude and perception towards sexual minorities in society.
17 July opening: everyone welcome, then by appointment only
