MTG Hawke's Bay

MTG Hawke’s Bay is proud to present FAFSWAG: code switch, an exhibition of art by three members of the South Auckland based FAFSWAG Arts Collective.

Jermaine Dean, Akashi Fisi’inaua and Walters Prize nominee Pati Solomona Tyrell each work across a range of performative and photographic art forms, with a common relationship to communities of indigenous Moana heritage and diverse genders and sexualities.

FAFSWAG: code switch coincides with Te Huinga Takatāpui o Aotearoa 2018, the national hui of rainbow whānau that has been held regularly since 1987 and is hosted in Hawke’s Bay for the first time this year. The exhibition also marks MTG Hawke’s Bay’s first engagement with prominent themes of gender and sexuality diversity.

The title of the exhibition refers to how FAFSWAG Arts Collective members are often described as ‘constant shapeshifters,’ reflecting the way they express fluid identities through a range of creative genres and contexts. Code-switching is the practice of modifying expression (such as language, behaviour and appearance) to adapt to different sociocultural norms.
