Celebrating it’s 10th anniversary, the Antipodean Palette responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by creating a virtual gallery for art lovers to witness this years ‘In Isolation’ artists.
After the devastating pandemic shook the world, the Greek Australian Cultural League sent a call out to all Greek Australian artists, asking them to take part in the AP2020 ‘In Isolation’ exhibition.
These incredible works can now be viewed online as a ‘walk through’ gallery, which continues until the end of October 2020.
Greek-Australian Cultural League President Cathy Alexopoulos has been overwhelmed at the response of the exhibition since it’s launch 10 years ago.
Prior to COVID-19 restrictions, the Antipodean Palette 2020 was to involve the collaboration of Indigenous, Greek Australian artists and performers in a unique exhibition titled ‘CONNECTION’.
Changing the theme, Ms Alexopoulos and the event organisers decided to acknowledge the profound impact the virus has had on artists and the Arts industry.
The Antipodean Palette was re-branded into a virtual exhibition, titled ‘IN ISOLATION’, with the Cultural League asking artists to send in a piece of isolation-themed work.
As a result, 15 Greek Australian artists sent in a variety of pieces, along with a statement, proving that artistic expression and innovation can arise from any challenge.
