The exhibition Celestial Bodies will showcase indigenous identities that identify as Two-Spirit, indigiqueer or reside within the LGBTQIA2S communities—giving a platform and space for the rarely recognized voices. The exhibition's goal will be to question the colonial presence of societal normalities regarding identity and deconstruct and abolish gender roles through the themes of desire, euphoria, despair, and dysphoria.
