ARTISTS, their topics, well being employees and politicians converged on Canberra Museum and Gallery this morning (February 3) for the opening of a brand new artwork exhibition devoted to the dedication of employees on the frontlines of the ACT’s COVID-19 response.

“Stronger Collectively”, curated by Jenny McFarlane, consists of artists’ views on the covid frontline well being response,  capturing snapshots and experiences from these working within the vaccination and testing centres, in addition to the voices of contact tracers, epidemiologists and others supporting the response to the pandemic.

A partnership between Canberra Well being Companies and CMAG, the exhibition presents the images of Marzena Wasikowska and Dion Georgopoulos, and the watercolours of Waratah Lahy, and an audio-visual set up by sound artist Ellis Hutch.

Gordon Ramsay, CEO of the Cultural Services Company, stated the present highlighted the significance of the humanities and artists in capturing our neighborhood’s experiences, noting that the apparently mundane material in Lahy’s impressions had resulted in delicate watercolours that will turn into “historic nonetheless lifes”.

Georgopoulos, for his half, had documented the primary days of vaccinations for youths, therefore the masked superheroes photographs, intend to place them comfy.

“Stronger Collectively”, Canberra Museum and Gallery from February 4 to July 30.
