Often, times of adversity — war, social crises, pandemics, etc. — lead to some of the most creative, introspective, and deep works of art across many genres. What sort of art can we expect to be made during and after the coronavirus pandemic? This fascinating video discusses art made in times of adversity.
Coming to you from The Art Assignment, this interesting video discusses art made in times of adversity. Artists often respond to and reflect the trends, feelings, and motion of society, and few events have had such a uniformly deep impact all across the globe as the current pandemic, and as such, I am very interested to see how artists of all media and genres respond. In addition to the truly devastating death toll and the economic impact of coronavirus, I think the extended social isolation brought about by safety measures is having a significant impact on both individuals and society at large, and as such, we will see quite a bit of art that focuses on this aspect along with the others mentioned. If the pandemic has motivated you to create any new work, I would love to see it; so, be sure to share it in the comments. Check out the video above for the full discussion.
