This pack of two die-cut magnets have been designed and made exclusively for the NGV design store in celebration of the exhibition, QUEER: Stories from the NGV Collection.
QUEER: Stories from the NGV Collection spans historical eras and diverse media, exploring queerness as an expression of sexuality and gender, a political movement, a sensibility, and as an attitude that defies fixed definition.
