LIFE DURING WARTIME: ART IN THE AGE OF CORONAVIRUS

Life During Wartime is the USF Contemporary Art Museum’s first major virtual exhibition. It humbly engages a select company of international artists to respond to the overwhelming realities of the crisis that has gripped the planet since March 5, 2020, the date the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. The exhibition takes full advantage of one of the few outlets artists still have— the Internet. It aims to mobilize sentiment, thought and activity around art and its enduring possibilities: its role as a conceptual catalyst, its ability to trigger ideas, stories, conversations, emotions, feelings and mental states. Separately and together, each artist contribution provides a picture of a planet in crisis, but also images of hope and optimism in the face of a global emergency.

Participating Artists Include: Marcos Agudelo, Diana Al-Hadid, Atelier Van Lieshout, Alberto Borea, Sebastiaan Bremer, The Bruce High Quality Foundation, Seth Cameron, Samantha Casolari, Rebecca Chamberlain, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Patricia Cronin, Godfried Donkor, Dysturb, Zhao Gang, Rico Gatson, Mark Thomas Gibson, Patrick Hamilton, Ellen Harvey, Yishai Jusidman, Deborah Kass, Basil Kincaid, Glenda León, Matvey Levenstein, Cristina Lucas, Narsiso Martinez, Eva and Franco Mattes, Richard Mosse, Angel Otero, Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara, Edison Peñafiel, Dagoberto Rodríguez, Anastasia Samoylova, Fernando Sánchez Castillo, Guy Richards Smit, Kiki Smith, Bosco Sodi, Tavares Strachan, Superflex, Sarah Sze, Jorge Tacla, Newsha Tavakolian, Janaina Tschäpe, Spencer Tunick, Rodrigo Valenzuela, Kennedy Yanko, Lisa Yuskavage. 

Curated by Christian Viveros-Fauné, and organized by USF Contemporary Art Museum, Tampa.
