The art world is going gay this month, with the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney at the forefront of LGBTQI celebrations. The gallery will get a “fabulous makeover”, partnering with Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras over the next week. On 1 March, the gallery hits the homosexual heights with Queer Art After Hours, a celebration of gay art and performance. (music comes courtesy of DJ Seymour Butz with star turns by The Huxleys and Cocoloco). But the highlight is the gallery’s Warhol-inspired Mardi Gras float which will take to the streets during the famous equality and pride parade on 4 March. The float will feature a giant gold shoe that will be flanked by dozens of dancing Warhol lookalikes, says a press statement (Andy would have loved it).
