Two Coats Online Art Guide: Spring 2020

Jack Shainman Gallery: Diedrick Brackens, Blessed are the Mosquitos

Contributed by Emma Stolarski / With stay-at-home orders and screen times going up, it seems that the art world of the moment is living in social media. Instagram is saturated with live interviews and IGTV studio visits alongside friends’ (or our own) confessions about sanity levels. It’s all a bit overwhelming. To stay creative, it’s important to seek out art. While there may be nowhere to go and no one to see, art organizations are improvising inventively by sharing resources and showcasing current exhibitions virtually. Transport yourself to the gallery exhibition you missed before quarantine, take an online course, or just keep technology at a distance instead. Time is one thing we do have, and art will be there when you’re ready.
