HyperSext City presented by Monash University XYX Lab

Fremantle Design Week

Who designs our cities? How does gender impact our experience of space, and how can cities be designed to be safe and inclusive for all? Fremantle Design Week is proudly partnering with Monash University XYX Lab to bring the award-winning exhibition ‘HyperSext City’ to West Australian audiences. ‘HyperSext City’ examines the nexus of gender and public space, drawing attention to the experiences of women, girls and LGBTQI communities in urban environments.

Through arresting hypergraphics and video works, the show uses data and intersectional gender narratives to make visible and amplify the voices of people who are not often heard. The Fremantle iteration of the show includes local data, and a paste-up campaign is running simultaneously in Fremantle and Melbourne, connecting shared experiences and activism across the continent.

The exhibition is an extension of the HyperSext Repository, an interactive website and data platform that collates and references data and research by crowdsourcing from communities, researchers and individuals across the globe. Portals at the exhibition encourage audience members to share their own experiences and contribute to driving change.

Exhibition opens on Friday October 30 from 6.30pm and runs until Sunday October 30 (Tue-Sun 10-4)
