This year began in an unusual way. The international pandemic sadly affected the art market . Art life on our island of Madeira has also changed a lot. We had to abandon a few big art projects and postpone them for the next GOOD year. However, we didn't stop. A lot of work on the creation of virtual art projects, showing exhibitions, reporting from artists' studios. However, we are proud to have done two big projects.
Exit from lockdown was in masks
Our first "post quarantine" exhibition we called "Masks"
During the whole quarantine we were preparing for the new season of the annual exhibition "Islands" This year the main theme was "Isolation". The state of the artist, his thoughts, ideas, works made during the quarantine. We have collected and exhibited only works made in Madeira during the self isolation. The result was surprisingly optimistic and striking.
