About the event

The  museum will be hosting a new exhibition titled 'Mother Nature is a  Lesbian' from Sunday 23rd January until Wednesday 17th February 2002.

The  exhibition is a group show of Lesbian Artists interpreting women’s  connections to nature through their cycles, reverence of the moon and  the healing sources in nature that have been celebrated across centuries  and across the whenua.

Lesbians loved being in nature long before  the seventies when such great activities and events like dyke hikes, the  Piha congress and lesbian summer camps started. We see vulva in tree  trunks and in the wee tutu kiwi a native orchid, the curve of the  branches, the grain of the wood, the shells, the stones, all gifts from  Mother Nature. This show is inspired by a seventies screen print from a  young lesbian who left for Adelaide (name unknown so far). This print is  now held in the Charlotte Museum collection.

The  exhibition is part of our Auckland Pride Festival 2022 celebrations and  is being held in accordance with COVID-19 traffic light settings.  Please note to visit the museum everyone must wear a mask, scan in,  observe social distancing and show their vaccination pass.
