Note:

This exhibition presents artworks that resulted from or directly relate to the ongoing pandemic, and includes painting, video, sculpture, and works on paper. It is organized by specific themes: politics, protest and the pandemic; the return to nature and the retreat to the suburbs; raiding the cupboard, stocking up and late capitalist shopping habits; reading the signs and staring at screens; and marking time. These themes represent some of the most common experiences and concerns that defined people’s time in quarantine.

The pandemic of 2020 has changed many things, but isolation is perhaps its most keenly felt effect. Told to stay home and avoid groups, humanity has developed new rituals and activities to cope withthe loneliness and uncertainty. Some people have reevaluated their urban lifestyles, and either moved out of major cities or found ways to escape into nature.

'Quarantine Quotidian' embraces the universality of the specific. Even separated we have shared in many of the major changes wrought by Covid-19. The exhibition encapsulates the high- and lowlights of the year to date, functioning like a miniature record of the human experience during a time of great upheaval.
