This is not a show about the pandemic. It is a gathering of works brought together in the wake of that moment, works that embody and contend with the polarities that were awakened, but which have always existed: inside and outside, closeness and distance. The works gathered range from meditations on public and private spaces and our movements between them; on the body in states of illness, pain, pleasure, reproduction and death; on mobility and change in the face of political and economic turmoil, and on the inevitable impact of an unseen threat that has changed everything. We ask: how can these intimate experiences, fraught relationships, larger forces and their attendant effects be communicated in an art work?
