Responding to the Victoria Together call out, TarraWarra Museum of Art commissioned eight Victorian artists/groups (18 artists in total) to create new digital works inspired by the notion of art, place, and ideas.
A reflection of being apart, and together, during the pandemic
The newly commissioned works are by artists from diverse backgrounds, including:
- Nat Grant,
- Nikki Lam,
- Chris O’Brien,
- Jodee Mundy,
- the collective YOMECIPLAY (Uyen Nguyen, Max Piantoni & Matthew Riley),
- Charlie Sofo and
- Yandell Walton.
- Wurundjeri dance group Djirri Djirri and filmmaker Daniel King have also created a video highlighting their celebration of culture and connection to Country.
These commissions are varied, ranging from witty to conceptual, interactive to awe-inspiring, heart-breaking to intimate. Together, they reflect the many ways in which people around the world experienced being both apart, and together, during the pandemic. The works reflect the diversity of the Victorian community and provide solace and inspiration at a time of continued upheaval around the world. Most significantly, we hope that these commissions inspire both wonder and creativity.

This project is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
