“It has been 4 months since COVID-19 changed our lives, but this virus doesn’t affect us all equally. While the toll of the virus is evident on all of our lives, the ongoing economic impact and precarity of many communities is getting overshadowed. If not properly addressed through policy the social crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic may also increase inequality, exclusion, discrimination and global unemployment in the medium and long term.
Art has always provided light in times of darkness. In a series of interviews (exclusively on Instagram), artist and curator Kevin Kotahunyi enters into a dialogue with artists, shedding light on their practices by asking in-depth questions about their background, inspirations and path in the art world. Despite the current climate, Kevin went in search of an “exit strategy” to support artists and bring the virtual exhibition alive, into reality.
Not every piece of artwork is a comment on society, but every piece tells a tale—no matter how subtle or abstract. A piece of art is so much more than its aesthetic attributes. It’s a portal into the artist’s life and their unique experiences.”
Featuring the works of Kato Bouckaert, Mel Lucy Bruneel, Yasmine Chakib, Kevin Kotahunyi, Samuel Lemba, Moira Murru, Giulio Napoletano, Line Pa Ke, Charlotte Perin, Leandro Saiombo.
