We’re Still Here: A Quarantine Exhibition
August 24 - September 4, 2020
1467 Jayhawk Blvd Art & Design Bldg
The disruption of Covid-19 has greatly impacted the artist’s studio practice. Exhibitions have been cancelled, the galleries and museums are closed, and the opportunities feel few and far between. These difficulties make us reflect on the purpose of artmaking. Who is the work for? Why must I persist? In We’re Still Here: A Quarantine Exhibition, second and third year MFA students at the University of Kansas offer a glimpse into works completed since March 2020. These are moments of triumph during a time where the world came to a halt. Our work in the studio continues to evolve in response to the crises of the past, present, and future.
