Life During Wartime: Art in the Age of Coronavirus

An Evolving Online Exhibition - lifeduringwartimeexhibition.org
June 6 - December 12, 2020 

Life During Wartime is the USF Contemporary Art Museum’s first major virtual exhibition. It humbly engages a select company of international artists to respond to the overwhelming realities of the crisis that has gripped the planet since March 5, 2020, the date the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. The exhibition takes full advantage of one of the few outlets artists still have— the Internet. It aims to mobilize sentiment, thought and activity around art and its enduring possibilities: its role as a conceptual catalyst, its ability to trigger ideas, stories, conversations, emotions, feelings and mental states. Separately and together, each artist contribution provides a picture of a planet in crisis, but also images of hope and optimism in the face of a global emergency.

 Curated by Christian Viveros-Fauné, and organized by USF Contemporary Art Museum, Tampa.
