Lockdown Activities for Art Lovers

We're now officially in lockdown across all the localities we're active. That means there won’t be any art events to attend as the UK, Berlin, New York and Los Angeles will be staying at home for the coming weeks. We sincerely hope this will quell the spread of COVID-19 and save lives, and that we’ll all come out of this inspired to see as much art as we can.

Despite the precarious situation we collectively find ourselves in, economic, health and otherwise, we find refuge in art and culture as we have always done, and we believe some of you might feel the same. To that end, we moved quickly to shift focus from location-specific art to virtual shows and art experiences you can indulge in from home, as well as collecting resources for creatives and culture professionals. Our popular ArtOpps are still running, with plenty of open calls to apply to from anywhere. We’ve also collected a list of art-related goodies you can experience online to help keep the boredom at bay. We’ll be providing many more resources and offering entertainment in the coming weeks, so watch this space.

This is a testing time for us as a small publisher and platform, but our dedicated team will continue to work on our mission to make art more accessible. While ArtRabbit has used technology to encourage real-life experiences, the circumstances of our present reality necessitate a shift. We see this as an opportunity to experiment with other formats, and we strive to bring you content that will continue to champion our goals.

This week, while you’re settling into lockdown, see below for our picks of virtual art to experience.

LA Pick of the Week

Catherine Opie's poignant exhibition Rhetorical Landscapes at Regen Projects has been extended through May 2, 2020. As evidenced in “Rhetorical Landscapes,” Catherine Opie is as comfortable documenting the natural landscape as she is in creating animations that point fingers at the injustices in contemporary society.

Please note that like most non-essential venues, the gallery is not currently open, but Jody Zellen from What’s on Los Angeles will be providing highlights to one local exhibition each week for you to read about.

  Bauhaus: Building the New Artist at Getty Research Institute

If you missed Bauhaus Beginnings at the Getty Research Institute last year, explore this interactive online exhibit conceived in tandem with the Getty Research Institute's gallery exhibition. It offers an in-depth look into the school's novel pedagogy, highlighting student explorations, masters' theories, and a variety of colourful media drawn from the GRI's archives.
