Melbourne is one of the most locked down cities in the world due to Covid-19. When Billy Gruner invited Terri Brooks and Louise Blyton to host the 6th international biennale of non objective art the artists hatched a plan. ‘The Home Show’ is a virtual group exhibition of twenty leading women abstract artists.
