MAKING ART IN PANDEMIC TIME
What are the consequences for artists and glass studios in a shrinking economy? What is the impact of limited social contacts for an artist, who works in solitude? How did the students experience the lockdown when preparing for the degree show? How did the pandemic affect their work? The past six months were so unprecedented that 'normal' graduation was impossible. Exhibitions were cancelled, museums and galleries closed. In this seminar, three artists discuss their experience during graduation, workshop closure and cancellation of exhibitions.
