Door to Door 2022

Door to Door – 2022 Berlin

In March 2020 at the beginning of the Pandemic and the lockdowns, we invited Art Aviso Artists to be part of Art Aviso event Door to Door (Art in the time of COVID-19 or Art from isolation). This project began in Australia and then was shared across Europe

Art Aviso Artists were supplied via email with a page from Newnes’ Pictorial Knowledge 1950’s Encyclopedia (Edited by Enid Blyton) selected at random (or so we told the artists), which was to form the basis of an artwork to be exhibited at some time on the other side of the Pandemic. The page could act as inspiration for the colours, forms, texture, feeling or as a research starting point to dive down the rabbit hole! 

When this project began there was no end plan for the output of the artwork, in fact it was very difficult to plan anything, it just felt important to be creating something together – apart.

What happened was, that we were inundated with requests to join the project, and as it began to unfold and the works started coming in with their accompanying stories, it became apparent that collectively the artworks were forming something special.

To date there are over 200 Artists currently part of this project and exhibition event.

The first phase of this exhibition was a virtual exhibition, which was all that was initially possible, then the Australian artwork was exhibited in Melbourne in February 2021 – this exhibition was cut short by yet another snap lockdown.

Now we take the Australian Artworks to Berlin to join the European Art Aviso Artists in the realisation of the project that began over two years ago!
