Love in the time of COVID-19
The National Museum of Australia gratefully received a donated set of the Love in the Time of COVID prints, a not-for-profit online group exhibition curated in 2020 by GAGPROJECTS in Adelaide. The series presents a range of artistic responses to COVID-19 from around the world.
One of the prints is by Melbourne artist Angus Hamra, featuring a reclining figure watching a laptop. Hamra refers to the work as a consideration of public, private and digital space within the context of COVID-19. “Newspaper clippings were taken from daily news cycles during the height of Melbourne lockdown and used to shape the slow reality of isolating at home”.
We will show more objects from our developing COVID-19 collection throughout 2021.
