Curator’s Statement

For three years now COVID has directly affected our lives. Initially, it forced us to stay indoors and to treat our normal world with fear and dread. Now that the disease is more normalized, and we feel more confident to resume social activity, how do we conceive of the world outside? How has this recent history, our new fear of this disease, affected our lives and our perceptions? These are some responses.
