ReRuns: The 2020 Self-Quarantining Exhibition
Two years later, I am still so proud of this exhibition. I believe it was the first exhibition that featured work made during the pandemic and when I look at the date that it ran, April 1st, we were only two weeks into the Stay At Home orders. It is a testament to art and creativity, where we look to our cameras to help us find a language for fear, trauma, and change. Bravo to all the artists who participated.
Happy April Fool’s Day! Let me start off by saying a huge THANK YOU to the participating photographers from all over the globe, each of whom shared a little bit about themselves during this profound moment in history. There were hundreds and hundreds of submissions and as I uploaded each one, I thought about your life and world. And though I corresponded only briefly with each of you, I was comforted by the connection to the greater whole as I have been in quarantine for almost three weeks. There are seven parts to this post so keep going until you get to the end. Pour yourself a big glass of wine or a big mug of coffee and enjoy the collected experience of The 2020 Lenscratch Self-Quarantining Exhibition…and share widely! Be safe out there. See you on the other side. – Aline Smithson
