After a conventional exhibition venue in 2019 to the online presentation last, year, Antipodean Palette 2021 will take to the streets of Melbourne to be displayed on billboards and on walls including Duckboard Place which is part of the street art trail of the Melbourne CBD.
This year’s theme for the exhibition which is hosted by the Greek Australian Cultural League (GACL) is “’METAMORΦOSIΣ” (Metamorphosis) that has been chosen to align with the central idea of the 200 years of Greek independence. It is also about change, adapting and moving forward.
“‘Change is the only constant in life’ a quote by Heraclitus, something we forget and yet is so obvious in today’s COVID-19 climate. After 12 months of insecurity, isolation, for many devastation, and saturated online work, study and interests, the GACL’s Antipodean Palette Art Exhibition is embracing change and exhibiting in a whole new and exciting presentation this year’ said GACL president Cathy Alexopoulos.
The exhibition will feature the work of 14 artists and will displayed in full colour on posters around Melbourne. Artists are invited to submit work relating the ‘’METAMORΦOSIΣ’ theme which may be interpreted in any way, genre or medium.
The exhibition runs for 14 days from 17 to 31 May.
The GACL said in a statement: “For the Antipodean Palette Art Exhibition to be uniform and immediately recognisable an image of each selected artwork will be displayed within a square format on an A0 size paste up poster. Each poster will also include the theme of the exhibition, the name of the artist, the title of the work and a QR code linking to the GACL website where the full digital image of the artist’s work, the artist statement and contact details will be located.”
