Home from Home is a new online initiative from the Glucksman. It is intended as a way to provide insight into the extraordinary situation of being confined to home during the COVID 19 pandemic. The selected artists were due to present work in the Glucksman this April as part of the exhibition HOME which is now postponed until later this year.
Every Tuesday and Friday, we share the response of a single artist and provide some additional information on their wider practice. To date, there are 5 responses to view with 10 more to be released over the coming weeks. View here.View here.
Home from Home captures some of the diverse ways we are all experiencing the current restrictions: the implications of working alongside children and pets, the solitary exploration of the imposed 2km parameter around one’s residence, the increased reliance on online networks and applications, a renewed attention to the natural world and the prominence of social distancing in our everyday lives.
