Life During Wartime: Art in the Age of the Coronavirus

Event Type: Exhibition
Facility: Contemporary Art Museum
Presented By: USF Institute for Research in Art
Description: 
Life During Wartime is USFCAM’s first major virtual exhibition. It asks more than 50 international artists to respond to the realities that have gripped the planet since March 5, the date the World Health 
Organization declared COVID-19 a worldwide pandemic. An evolving, real-time display, the exhibition mobilizes feeling, thought, and activity around art’s role as a conceptual catalyst. Artist contributions
 provide a picture of a planet in crisis, but also images of hope and optimism in the face of a global emergency. This exhibition is curated by Christian Viveros-Fauné, and organized by USF 
Contemporary Art Museum, Tampa.

Made possible by Major Sponsor the Stanton Storer Embrace the Arts Foundation, and by a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The USF Contemporary Art Museum is 
recognized by the State of Florida as a major cultural institution and receives funding through the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council on Arts and 
Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts. The USF Contemporary Art Museum is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.
