Wrap me in a rainbow flag and call me Michelangelo Signorile, but I still get irritated when representations of Australia that purport to include everybody exclude anyone who looks vaguely queer. (Most recent example: a film about Oz at the Museum Of Australia that bent over backwards to represent our nation’s diversity, without ever bending forward.) Well, members of our communities, consider this your official notice to hop, skip or jump to the Firstdraft Gallery this Sunday 2 June to participate in a public art project called Everybody. David Star and Julian Wolkenstein will be photographing 500 people (the first ream to arrive), intended to provide the means for people to present themselves in the form of a self-portrait. There are only two conditions: no props are allowed (your hands must be free) and you must be fully clothed. The gallery is at 116-118 Chalmers Street, Surry Hills, and photographs will be taken from 10am to 6pm. Participation is free.
