Tropical Gaze is the annual Cairns Tropical Pride art exhibition, an eclectic mix of artworks, mediums and styles from established and emerging LGBT+ artists, a community renowned for exciting and extravagant creations.

Stimulate your senses with Tropical North Queensland's most exhilarating art. Sculpture, collage, oil on canvas, watercolour, multimedia, clay, found objects and bricolage unite in the biggest ever exhibition of LGBTI art work this side of the Tropic of Capricorn.

Also this year there will be a “Sealed Section”; a retrospective display of HIV/AIDS posters produced around Australia since the 1980s.

From the perils of Grim Reaper through decades to the hopes of today, this is the first exhibition of its type in Australia with contributions from every state and territory. Experience an extraordinary visual timeline of the HIV pandemic seen through educational posters created by remarkable artists.

The Slip 'n Slide launch party on Friday 6 October will feature multi-media vignettes by participating artists and riotous entertainment.

N.B The sealed section of this exhibition is restricted to adults only.

This event is proudly part of the Tropical Mardi Gras Program.
