A continuation of the series' first installment, Sickness and Solitude 2 features three visual artists who take audience members on a one-of-a-kind ocular odyssey without leaving home. The DHC will mail Retro 3-D viewers and a custom reel with seven new, exclusive images addressing sickness and solitude to the first 100 registrants. Participants will enjoy new work by "America's Best Photographer" and National Book Award finalist, Sally Mann; artist of the diasporic black female experience and "the future of figurative painting," Wangari Mathenge; and iconic stop-motion animators, narrative innovators, and all-around visionaries, The Brothers Quay.
Events in the Sickness and Solitude series look at the state of the world today, especially as filtered through the lens of COVID and calls for social justice. The series offers an artistic response, with each event featuring multiple artist panelists, as well as interdisciplinary approaches to a shared theme.
Registration for Sickness and Solitude 2 ends May 7. More information about the program and featured artists is available on the DHC website.
