Landscapes of Quarantine exhibition
Final Day: Saturday, April 24, 2010
Exhibition Walk-through: 3:00pm
On the last day of Storefront’s exhibition, Landscapes of Quarantine, members of the public were invited to join us for an exhibition walk-through with the designers, architects, artists, and curators whose works were on display.
Perhaps you’d like to know what it was like exploring the abandoned quarantine spaces on North Brother Island, or gate-crashing UN Peace & Reconciliation Missions while on the trail of Ebola in the Congo? What is on in the top ten recommended quarantine reading list, and what are the ethical implications of embedding quarantine space throughout the city? Beginning at 3:00pm, visitors had the opportunity to participate in an informal but unique peek behind the scenes of the group design studio and exhibition. The exhibition walk-through was free and open to the public.
Landscapes of Quarantine featured works by a multi-disciplinary group of eighteen artists, designers, and architects, each of whom were inspired by one or more of the physical, biological, ethical, architectural, social, political, temporal, and even astronomical dimensions of quarantine.
