In the face of imposed isolation, social distancing measures that marginalise and contract societies, and the fear and disillusion the future holds, Tortuga Studios presents:
KALEIDOSCOPIC: an exhibition for strange times
It is a reaction, a visceral response to COVID-19, its devastating impact around the globe, and, more locally, the evisceration of Sydney’s arts quarter, the Inner West.
A rolling display of creative practice, KALEIDOSCOPIC is both greater than the sum of its parts and a tiny fragment of who we are as a creative community. A weekly rotation of artwork proudly installed in towering warehouse windows, overlooking Sydney Park, this exhibition is about finding tiny signs of beauty in a fractured world and nurturing the connection that we are missing.
It is our way of connecting artists and their audiences, of presenting work in isolation. You might glimpse it from a speeding window, read about it on social media or hear of it from a friend who wandered by, and while it might not be as tech savvy as a Zoom meeting, however you experience it, we hope KALEIDOSCOPIC entertains you.
