We are Back! - Artists of the Potato Shed is a photography exhibition that seeks to capture moments in the performances of 23 actors, musicians and singers and their performances at the Potato Shed in 2019 and 2020.
The exhibition recognised the impact of the Covid 19 shutdowns of the performing arts industry as a whole but more importantly it allowed each featured artist to write their own artist statement to personalise the the affect on their careers and lives.
Regrettably, this struggle has continued into 2021 and the name We are Back! has been premature.
We are Back! opened on 4th December 2020 and featured 5 local musicians, the Von Robertsons and Madeleine Cope. The event was also live streamed.
Location: The Potato Shed 29-41 Peninsula Drive, Drysdale Vic 3222.
Entry to the exhibition opening and the live and streamed performance was free.
My gratitude to the City of Greater Geelong for their grant and the Bendigo Bank (Portarlington & Drysdale) for their sponsorship to enable this exhibition to take place.
