Details

Continuing our season of reflection on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are pleased to present Care | Contagion | Community - Self & Other an Autograph touring exhibition and commissioning project. Initiated during the first month of lockdown in March 2020, when Autograph’s curatorial team Mark Sealy, Renée Mussai and Bindi Vora spent a year working closely with ten UK-based artists to support the creation of new work.

As we face the emotional, physical, economic, psychosocial, and other consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic and consider new ways of being in this time of global crisis, the notion of community and care is more pertinent than ever. Autograph commissioned ten visual artists - Mohini Chandra, Poulomi Desai, Joy Gregory, Othello De’Souza-Hartley, Sonal Kantaria, Ope Lori, Dexter McLean, Karl Ohiri, Silvia Rosi and Aida Silvestri - to create new work responding to the wider contexts of Covid-19, looking closely at their immediate environments. Care | Contagion | Community - Self & Other is a wide-ranging reflection on the global impact of Covid-19.
