Kate Durbin – Hello Selfie Men

Curated by the 2015 Arts Queensland Poet in Residence Kate Durbin, HELLO SELFIE MEN is a one-hour performance where men from the Brisbane community will take selfies for an hour straight in the Fortitude Valley Mall, not talking to each other or directly interacting with the audience. They will upload their selfies in real time as the performance unfolds to the FB event wall.

Inspired by the online maxim REAL MEN DON’T TAKE SELFIES, this performance explores masculine identity formation, and seeks to discover what happens when the male gaze gazes back on itself.
