DANI MARTI ‘Friendship as a way of life’ in Art Almanac

July 30, 2020

Dani Marti’s sensual, beaded ‘Pleasure Chest’ and intimate video work ‘Notes for Bob’ are both featured in UNSW Galleries group show ‘Friendship as a way of life’, curated by José Da Silva and Kelly Doley. This major, multi-faceted exhibition explores themes of public relations, living arrangement and intergenerational kinship in LGDTQI+ communities.
For Art Almanac, Dr Joseph Brennan writes that the exhibition “expresses – in spaces physical, digital, and otherwise imagined – have a visceral resonance for many of us seeking community, friendship and intimacy in this historical moment, those marginalised among us especially.”
