Event Details

Pandemical Loneliness probes the role that the COVID-19 pandemic has played—as it exposes both great harm and hidden
opportunities—in restructuring interpretations and experiences of interior and exterior spaces. By linking atmospheres of distance, despondence, solitude and longing, a collective of curators explores the pandemic’s emotional impact on home life,
public space and daily existence. Situating works from Agnes’s contemporary and historical collections in Etherington House allows the curators to directly reprise and appraise homebound feelings of the pandemic, ranging from loss, to dread, to simple pleasures. The selection of painting, sculpture, photography, video, textile and print includes works by Stephen Andrews, Adrian Blackwell, Edward Burtynsky, Alan Collier, Douglas Coupland, Sarindar Dhaliwal, Drayden DeCosta, Rebecca Diederichs, Betty Goodwin, Alice Henriette, John Lyman, Kelly Mark, Florence McGillivray, David Milne, Kim Ondaatje, Ciara Phillips, Anne Ramsden, Mary Rawlyk, Jon Sasaki, Preston Schiedel and Lisa Visser.


Curated by Baraa Abuzayed, Will Boyle, Drayden DeCosta, Darby Huk, Zakary Jiwa, Elijah Nadler and Bingyu Sheng with Coordinating Curator Sunny Kerr, through Screen Cultures and Curatorial Studies 830.


Pandemical Loneliness is generously supported by the Canada Council for the Arts
