“Change is the only constant in life” a quote by Heraclitus, something we forget and yet is so obvious in today’s Covid 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. From Steps Gallery in 2019, to virtual in 2020, it is now in 2021 hitting the streets of Melbourne. The exhibition will be displayed on outside billboards and city walls where no social distancing will be required.
The exhibition will consist of a limit of 14 artists’ work and displayed in full colour in Duckboard Place —a centrally located space within the street art trails of Melbourne’s CBD— as well as separately random placed work within the city and surrounding suburbs. The exhibition will run for two weeks from 17 to 31 May.
The theme ‘Metamorphosis’ has been chosen to align with the central idea of the 200 years of Independence of the Republic of Greece from Ottoman rule. But it is so much more than that. It is about change, about adapting, about moving forward.
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.
Artists are invited to submit work relating to ‘Metamorphosis’. The theme may be interpreted in any way, genre and medium.
