What a year? SARS CoV-2 has hit us hard and forced us into a new normal. What is this normal now in the sciences, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics? What has happened to your work, research, and lives that would not have happened without the interruption of the SARS CoV-2 virus? How was the pandemic a spark for innovation for that cultural change, poem, industrial design, theorem, performance, medical discovery or whatever you and your team have discovered?

Deadlocked and Loaded: Disarming America

Curated by Karen Gutfreund

Deadlocked and Loaded: Disarming America is a “locked and loaded” conversation through art, showcasing art in all media that addresses the culture of violence, systemic racism, police brutality and gun issues in the United States—particularly in how it affects women and children and the lasting impacts. From a feminist perspective with work from self-identified female artists, how do we tackle the role gender plays in gun violence and the gun control debate in a time of pervasive toxic masculinity and the erosion of women’s rights? The works speak to issues that include gender, race, mental health, political affiliations, philosophical stances, remembrance and memorials, and access to and use of firearms in regard to the 2nd Amendment. Deadlocked and Loaded does not seek to provoke controversy with “shock art”, but rather to serve as a conduit to create a space where constructive conversation and healing is possible.
