“Imagine otherwise. Remake the world. Some of us have never had any other choice” - Christina Sharpe
Life as we know it has been brought to a standstill by a global pandemic; all political and social realities are under siege.
‘Life, interrupted’ brings together a selection of artists who have investigated this subject matter as uncertainty permeates through our lives. Coronavirus exposed and exacerbated dysfunctions and inequalities within the global systems that govern our lives. Works displayed in this exhibition use art as a form of resistance and a way of imagining new futures. What is deemed impossible, has now emerged into the forefront of our political and social imagination.
