When: 30 October 2020 - 31 January 2021
Where: MAMA, 546 Dean Street, Albury
20:20 brings together twenty contemporary Australian artists, commissioned at the beginning of the pandemic to create work for our major Summer exhibition. Never before will our museum have had every space, inside and out, presenting new work.
The twenty new works in 20:20 share visions of a changed world, a more just society, critiques of environmental policy, and the fight for racial justice. 20:20 witnesses our current calamity and seeks insight, kindness and hope.
The twenty resulting artist projects provide an active picture that moves from celebrating intimate moments of day to day life, to the actions of artists determined to forge ahead with work whilst so much shuts down around them, and out to artists’ perspectives on the globally felt issues of economic injustice, the Black Lives Matter movement, and climate emergency.
There is discord here and there is community. There is social engagement alongside introspection. Sadness can be witnessed and hope shared.
