Allergan celebrated their milestone 50 years in Australia and New Zealand by creating a pop-up art gallery in Waterloo, Sydney last week. Titled ‘Innovation & Impact’, the exhibition was a collaboration with 7 popular Australian street artists, showcasing 14 bespoke pieces interpreting selected Allergan products and also bringing the patient journey to life.
According to Allergan, merging the worlds of science and art to produce this collection is a reflection of the company’s culture, and a nod to the concept of partnerships, collaborations, and listening to the community.
Australian artist Scott Marsh completed one of his pieces live during the celebratory event last week, showcasing the creative process and his artistic techniques.
Other high profile and emerging Australian artists such as Claire Foxton, Elliot Routledge, George Rose, Joel Birch, Ling, and Maid were also given the opportunity to create interpretive pieces which reflect the emotional connection that people can have with certain products, their own personal possibilities, and the desire for continued innovative solutions.
Besides being a celebration of 50 years of Allergan operating in Australia and New Zealand, the pop up event was also meant to be an appreciation of the support that customers, employees, and the community have given to Allergan.
