Towards the end of our long lockdown in 2020 I had the thought,

'What does Collins Street look like at 5pm now?'

Whatever prompted the thought, it clearly related to John Brack's painting, Collins St, 5pm.

John Brack, Collins St 5pm. 114.8 x 162.8 cm, oil on canvas, 1955

So began the idea for an exhibition reflecting on the social and political climate that evolved in 2020 and has been fermenting in surprising ways ever since.
