ONLINE GROUP EXHIBITION June 1-28, 2020
"CHRYSALISTASIS" - curated by artist James Austin Murray.
"At the moment much of the world is on partial lockdown which has changed our world and culture profoundly. There is anxiety and fear and it's understandable. Yet we all move forward in this new reality. We don’t know how long this will last or what life will look like after this passes. We do know that it will one day end and things will be different. Like the transformation a caterpillar goes through before becoming a butterfly, we are waiting for the change to become concrete and clear.
So what are artists creating in their studios? With exhibitions cancelled or just moved online, and no artist receptions planned any time soon, we continue to work. This exhibition is not about the COVID virus or social distancing, but it's a product of the changes brought on by these new circumstances. I reached out to 50 artists whom I admire to see what they were doing during these unique days. Many are located in the New York region, others hail from throughout the U.S. as well as far afield as India, Australia, Brazil, Cyprus, Germany and England. These are their works." - James Austin Murray.
