How Can We Think of Art at a Time Like This?  is an online exhibition, co-curated by Barbara Pollack and Anne Verhallen as a platform for the exchange of ideas at this time of crisis.  We invited artists who are considered thought leaders, artists who struggle with futuristic pessimism, political outrage and psychic melt-downs.  The invited artists, many ACC alumni, have responded with unbridled enthusiasm and we will be posting new artists every day for the foreseeable future.

This site is also a platform for free expression,  inviting visitors to post responses on our Commons page. We hope to open a dialogue at a time of social distancing.  Art offers solace or has instigated resistance and rebellion.   This was true during the AIDS crisis,  in the weeks after 9/11,  at the shock of Hurricane Sandy and all the other signs of global warming altering environments around the world.
