MOD: Life Interrupted

In a time where a week feels like a month and news changes daily, it’s hard to know where you’re at. Things are a strange mix of normal and different and nothing really makes much sense. We feel that, and we want to help.  

LIFE INTERRUPTED is an online exhibition that will grow with time, with iterations from our previous exhibitions, as well as new ideas and creationsIt’s made up of things to help you feel prepared, like Bad News Game which helps to immunise you against fake news. It has things to feel connected, like a community-built, lush virtual garden in Minecraft. And there are things to distract you, like soundscapes meditating on place by Adelaide-based musicians and artists.  

Over the coming weeks or months, keep checking in. There will be exhibits to contribute to, new things to see, and programming to engage with. We’re right here by your side to hang out and be connected in this new normal. 

LIFE INTERRUPTED is available right here online for as long as we need it.

(if you are not on Instagram you can email them to Louise and she will post them)
Follow along at: @grasslands.drawwithme

Watch live-performances at the Tate in London

Congolese choreographer and dancer Faustin Linyekula had already travelled to London when his show at Tate Modern was cancelled due to coronavirus. He made the most of it though, and filmed his performance in the moody, empty mid-century industrial gallery with fellow performers who had also made it to London for the show. Each of the Tate’s four galleries (the Britain and Modern in London, Tate Liverpool and Tate St Ives) also displays works online, and there’s a series of videos, podcasts and online classes to keep you going between visits.

Become and expert of Spanish, Italian and Flemish art at Madrid’s Museo del Prado

Each day this splendid museum uploads videos from its galleries to Facebook and Instagram.

Visit Frida Kahlo’s La Casa Azul and more with Google’s Arts & Culture hub

Frida Kahlo’s La Casa Azul, or Blue house, is a fascinating and essential stop in Mexico City. The artist’s house – now a museum – is in one of the oldest and most beautiful neighbourhoods in the busy city, and offers a glimpse into the eventful, inspiring and often difficult life of one of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century. It’s where she was born and died, where her husband, the artist Diego Rivera, also lived, and where her friends and lovers (including Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky) spent some time. You can “wander” the colourful house and pretty grounds, and check out Kahlo’s personal objects.

La Casa Azul is just one of the hundreds of art institutions that have worked with the Google Cultural Institute to create a comprehensive database of some of the world’s greatest art collections and galleries. Google Arts & Culture isn’t new – it launched in 2011 – but over the years it’s given cultural organisations access to technology (such as street-view tools) to capture art and offer fun 360-degree exploration options. You might not be able to visit Paris’s Musée d’Orsay or New York’s Museum of Modern Art (Moma), in person, but you can on your computer.

Enter Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Room

From her celestial Infinity Mirror Room to her expansive dot paintings, revolutionary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama creates art you remember. While it isn’t exactly the same as walking into one of her all-consuming installations, this 14-minute video created by The Broad Museum in LA (with a score by composer Geneva Skeen) is pretty stunning. It’s best watched in the dark.

Cook in unison, join an artist party and more with Sydney’s 2020 Biennale

While the biennale isn’t a physical institution, this epic art event (which was scheduled to run from March 14 to June 8) has enough happening online to warrant a mention here. The 2020 biennale launched the same week the lockdowns began, but instead of simply cancelling it, it moved online. The online program runs from April 6 to June 8, and each day of the week will cover one of the seven themes. Mondays will begin with a focus on bila (an Indigenous word for river, interpreted here as the natural environment), with podcasts and playlists to create the mood for the week. On Wednesdays artists from across the globe will host social-media takeovers and parties on the festival’s Instagram account, and on weekends artists and community leaders will share their favourite recipes and encourage people to cook in unison.
