Lisbon’s Underdogs Gallery just launched an online group exhibition inviting its roster of artists to showcase works they made during self-isolation. Titled “RIGHT NOW,” the sprawling digital presentation features paintings, sculptures, and drawings. All of the works in the show evoke each artist’s present reality and how they are navigating the new normal in the time of corona.

Underdogs Gallery expressed in a statement: “Some artists are used to being confined to their studios for long periods of time. Others are used to traveling the world to work in situ in various locations. Others still fall somewhere in between these two poles. Yet for all, this new experience of confinement has brought on new challenges. How are they reacting to these? How are they keeping busy? How are they creating? How are they coping both physically and emotionally? How do they see this new reality?”

André Saraiva, Vhils, Okuda San Miguel, PichiAvo, Wasted Rita, and more celebrated artists are currently showcasing works for the presentation. Highlights include an ink on paper drawing by Saraiva, a wool on canvas work by San Miguel, and a graphite on paper piece by Vhils. Take a look at select artworks in the slideshow above and then visit Underdogs Gallery’s website to view more.

Elsewhere, Roy Lichtenstein’s $30 million USD painting will lead Christie’s four-city global auction.
