Born in Alpha, Central Queensland, artist Luke Roberts has been at the fore of performance, photography, painting and installation for over five decades. His work pushes the boundaries of art, addressing his complex Catholic upbringing, sexuality, identity, gender and Queerness. ‘Beyond the Great Divide’ is an expansive exhibition that brings Roberts back to the region. Curated by Nicholas Tsoutas.
