From the beginning of the pandemic the art world has been working to create new opportunities for showing paintings, drawings, sculptures and photographs. While some video needs to be seen in person to be immersed in the experience, most video has been traditionally seen on our computer screens, tablets or phones, while sitting in the privacy of our homes. Sheltering in place offers an advantage for video artists to have their work seen on a greater scale. The exhibition was created through crowd-sourcing on Facebook as well as a call out to video artists.
The work in the exhibition covers a wide range of time and subject matter. Some of the work was created during the pandemic while other videos were created over the last few years. The videos are poetic and deep; powerful and uplifting; inventive and experimental; monumental and strong; narrative and abstract.
Take your time watching the videos. Come back to the exhibition over and over again and enjoy the ride.
