2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, and in times like these the sense of humanity and connection that art can bring is essential. Luckily for us, while the rest of the world has been shutting down, artists have been finding new ways to explore, create, and engage. And so, after a challenging start to the year, fortyfivedownstairs is excited to announce that we’re opening online with our new exhibition series Fragments.
Each month, we will feature Fragments of an artist’s practice and collection. The exhibitions will unfold over the month via Instagram, and each of the artworks featured in our Fragments series will be available to view and purchase online.
The first of these Fragments will take the form of the group show HERE which brings together 25 accomplished Victorian artists, and features work that explores the themes of resilience and growth. The online exhibition will include work from artists’ past practices and works that display an evolution of creative practice amid the chaos of the past few months – an act of resilience and growth in itself!
