Join us for an Artist Talk on Zoom for the exhibition The View from Here.
50 days into Connecticut’s “Stay Safe, Stay Home” executive order, Artspace checks in with 5 artists in our current exhibition, The View from Here, to see how they’ve maintained their practice under Covid lockdown. As artists are forced to think and work innovatively around the terms of making, gathering and sharing their work “in person,” we explore a range of questions relating to their altered disciplines, and sense of physical space, digital space and head space. Curator Sarah Fritchey will moderate a conversation around some of these concerns, reflecting on how the space of quarantine has recalibrated the site of studio practice, as well as the age-old paradigm that art provides “a window into the world.” Trapped within certain frames, and pushed out of others, where might our artwork lead?
Artspace holds this conversation 7 days before the Governor’s phase-one-plan to reopen select non-essential businesses and public spaces goes into effect. As we reach this benchmark, do we anticipate that our practice will pick up from where we left off, or has quarantine opened windows to new strategies, routes and directions? Featured artists include: Dymin Ellis, Eben Kling & Aude Jomini, Abbie Kundishora and Lilly Zuckerman.
