Antipodean Palette 2020

Ψηφιακή Εκθεση ζωγραφικής

Ο Ελληνο-Αυστραλιανός Πολιτιστικός Σύνδεσμος αναγνωρίζει τις επιπτώσεις που έχει δημιουργήσει στην ζωή μας ο Kορονoϊός και περισσότερο σ’αυτήν των καλλιτεχνών, γι’ αυτό αποφάσισε να τροποποιήσει το πρόγραμμα της έκθεσης Antipodean Palette, 2020, έτσι ώστε να δώση την ευκαιρία στους Ελληνο-Αυστραλούς καλλιτέχνες να προβάλλουν τις δημιουργίες τους στην εποχή της απομόνωσης.

Αυτό το χρόνο το Antipodean Palette, σημειώνη 10 χρόνια λειτουργίας και καλεί όλους τους καλλιτέχνες που είχαν λάβει μέρος στις προηγούμενες εκθέσεις να υποβάλουν, εάν επιθημούν, την αίτηση τους να λάβουν μέρος στην φετινή έκθεση η οποία θα γίνει ψηφιακά- website, Facebook, κτλ, του Συνδέσμου. Οι εργασίες που θα υποβληθούν θα σχετίζονται με το θέμα – Στην Απομόνοση.

Το περιοδικό Αντίποδες, φέτος θα είναι αφιερωμένο στα 10 χρόνια του Antipodean Palette, και θα φιλοξενήσει έργα και βιογραφικά επιλεγμένων εικαστικών καλλιτεχνών που θα συμμετέχουν στην φετινή έκθεση.
