VENUE: Korean Cultural Centre Australia gallery
The Korea-Australia Arts Foundation Art Prize (KAAFAP) has been postponed due to the uncertainty regarding COVID-19. This year, instead of the annual art prize, the KAAF presents the interim group show including past award winners and some selected finalists.
New Beginning features new paintings from 27 Australian artists and their response to the current global pandemic situation. Artists have approached this challenge with various creative thought processes. These works hope to inspire new ways of thinking, seeing and living through this challenging time.
New Beginning aims to not only share the artists’ inner world with the audience but also celebrate the achievements of all art prize participants over the past 8 years.
As a venue partner, the Korean Cultural Centre Australia has been working with the KAAF over the course of its 8 year history in supporting multiculturalism in Australia.
