Come Together, Right Now - Gathering 20/21

Come Together, Right Now - Gathering 20/21', is a combination of a number of virtual exhibitions, that took place from December 2020 until May 2021, each hosting an international gathering of artist's under shared and similar ideas.


Artist-lead curated exhibitions are derived of communal, historical and contemporary knowledge; selecting artworks as part of a shared idea creating established exhibitions on a virtual platform.  Artworks include photography, painting, sculpture, installation and digital multimedia. Five themes–Identity, Affinity, Being Human, Nude Affiliation & Portraiture and Spiritual Awakening— display the many ways artists explore the joys and complexities of “Self, Emotion & Human Understanding”  respecting the history and contemporary thought process of art, both with knowledge and the art making process.


Come Together, Right Now- Gathering 20/21 was created, in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic when people faced unprecedented isolation while also uniting in a struggle to control the devastating disease. The feelings of distance and loneliness have fostered a new appreciation for communities and personal connections.  Worldwide, artist's, along with the rest of the human race, seek new ways of coming together to create, share and show outside of the historical 4 white walls setting.


Five successful exhibitions were judged and created on a 3 dimensional virtual platform, whereby the cyber public could view, interact and learn about the artist's and concepts of each exhibition. 


Here today is the recording of the exhibitions combined archived for your viewing.  This project is a historical movement in history, whereby the experience of the viewer in art exhibitions is imbedded for future generations to come.
