Echoes of the Pandemic

February 6, 2024 - May 30, 2025
In South Ambulatory and Stern Gallery

This spring at the Allen, some works on view in the South Ambulatory and Stern Gallery share a common theme: they help us to reflect on the recent global COVID-19 pandemic. As you view them, perhaps consider these questions: Does this work relate to your experience of the pandemic? Does it change your perspective or broaden your understanding of the global impact of that event?
