From the devastation of COVID-19 to the voices of the Black Lives Matter protests, from the assaults on people of color, immigrants, women and democracy by the current president to the growing threats of a heating planet, this year has brought changes both collectively and personally to each of us and revealed wounds that have never been healed. Artists often assert a responsibility to raise awareness within themselves and to others and to speak from places of personal and collective pain and strength using their abilities to create impactful poignant works. By highlighting artists that are seeking to give voice to the feelings and experiences of the times, “Collective Disquiet” aims to provide a space for reflection and communication about the frightening, difficult and hopefully transformative time of our current world.
