Australias Eurovision 2021 representative Montaigne is set to collaborate with the Art Gallery of New South Wales as part of the Gallerys #TogetherInArt project jointly celebrating Make Music Day 2020 on June 21.

Montaigne will perform stripped down versions of her songs in front of an art piece called Cosmos - a life of fire by Lindy Lee where it will be broadcast on Facebook Live. The event is described by the Gallery an exploration of the unique power of art and music to bring people together as we look to the future in a post-pandemic world.

The bronze sculpture was created in 2014 and is describe by the Art Gallery with the following:

Lindy Lees flung bronze wall pieces stem from her deep exploration of Chan, or Zen, Buddhism. When Lee ladies pools of molten bronze onto foundry floor, she is employing forces and energies that recall beliefs about the origins of the universe that are central to Buddhism. Lees spiritual belief is that the organic bronze shapes are formed not by chance, but from the interconnection of all conditions that exist in the universe at that moment to embody its energy and totality. Lee and Gulumbu Yunupiu, whose works are adjacent, have spoken together about their cultures shared understanding of deep time and cosmos.

Make Music Day was launched in 1982 in France as the Fte de la Musique, the event is now held on the same day in more than 1000 cities in 120 countries and celebrates the joy of music-making and the ability of music to bring people together.
