'Exploring the Blak Queer Frontier’ is an official exhibition presented as part of 'Victoria's Pride 2023', delivered by Midsumma in partnership with the Victorian State Government.

Enoki is a proud Dja Dja Wurrung and Yorta Yorta Non-Binary Blak Fulla who is based on Wurundjeri Country in Naarm (Melbourne), and they’re a multimedia artist with a main focus in digital media.

Enoki explores Blakness and queer identity in their practice. They’re inspired by everything from 90s and early 2000s artists, music and pop culture to old classical paintings.
