expo | Dustin Thierry: Opulence

From the ground floor, visitors descend to the museum’s basement level, where subdued blue lighting and golden curtains form the décor to Dustin Thierry’s small scale exhibition, Opulence. Opulence is an ode to the deceased brother of Thierry “and to all those who are not yet able to be true to their sexual identity”, says the artist, born in 1985 in Curaçao. Black and white photographs of individual and group portraits provide a window into the European Ballroom scene; a subculture of the LGBTQI+ community in which black queer young people exuberantly celebrate their identity in dance competitions.
