Tough times have always produced the most memorable of art movements.
But what does it do for patrons of art?
In this three-part series, Curina explores how COVID-19 and our stay at home can change the way we consume art - not merely by moving everything online but by giving us the time to ruminate, absorb, and reminisce on things.
Sure, we were all happy for about two and a half days mindlessly binging TV shows. But what can you do to still feel like a creative, productive human being?
Mind you, we don’t mean replicating the exact things you have been doing before COVID-19.
If anything, this is a good time to ponder what part of art you have always enjoyed. Was it the wine nights at gallery openings? The feeling of quietude at a museum’s morning hours? Do you prefer reading and writing to process your thoughts about a painting, or would you rather enjoy the moment of viewing?
Our goal is to recognize these different tastes and to get creative with them. So here are a few (very subjective) suggestions for a vicarious life in art, inspired by your favorite art girls from TV.
