2020. A new decade represented by climate change, bushfires, drought, a global pandemic and the threat of a great depression. For thousands who work in the arts their immediate and future livelihoods have been dramatically impacted.
As a way of helping to bring our industry together and support the artists, The Kitchen Creative Management in collaboration with Christopher Doyle & Co, SUNSTUDIOS and Momento Pro, have curated this online exhibition to showcase innovative works conceived in 2020.
“Between Today and Tomorrow” is a repository of a society’s collective memory – preserving the artists experience of how it feels to exist in a particular place at a particular time. The time of COVID-19.
The response to the pandemic in the arts industry has been overwhelmingly positive. SALA is running its entire festival through artists websites this year. I have been very fortunate in that Gary Sauer-Thompson via his studio in Encounter Bay invited me to exhibit with an idea that explored the pandemic. The online exhibition is entitled, ‘Walking/Photography’, its premise is simple:-
“The exhibition explores the interrelationships between these two modes of being-in-the-world. The ethos is to go for a walk in your local area, where you can find what you don’t know you are looking for. It is a step into the photographic unknown that uncovers the forgotten or buried history of the area.”
The ‘exhibtion’ opens on the 1st of August and runs until the 30th of September.
