Description

Virus and Virtual: Pandemic Dreams explores our collective memories from the past two years and the ways in which our personal self-awareness, our purpose, and the passage of time have all changed. These concepts are multi-faceted in nature and have altered us individually, while spanning into our greater communities. In order to fully examine a variety of perspectives, mixed-media artist Hugh Atkins worked with The Delaware Contemporary’s Creative Arts Club to collaborate with a group of high school students from Freire Charter School in Wilmington.

This collaborative effort showcases the multitude of personal narratives connected to the overarching themes that emerge through individual and collective memories of the past twenty-four months. Developed in the Atkins’ studio, and through working sessions with the students, the resulting collages showcase the expanse of lived experiences and shared memories that range from joyfully mundane, painfully tragic, and universally emotional that transcend age and connect us through shared storytelling.
