Art Reception

The Trenton Artists Workshop Association (TAWA) and the Trenton Free Public Library will present the exhibition “PANDEMICA: Images of a Potential Future” at the Trenton Free Public Library from December 7 th – January 28 th . An opening reception is set for Thursday, December 8th, from 5 to 7 p.m. About the exhibit: In a world of increasing population, decreasing resources and climate change, we are forcing the extinction of species and rapid mutation of viruses. The threat of annihilation for our species is ever present by our advancements, a self-destruction in the name of progress. Pandemics are nothing new. They happen every few generations, almost like a check and balance for an exploding population. What made this recent pandemic unique was the rapid pace at which the virus spread. Congestive populations, ease of travel around the world and a thriving global economy are all part of a pandora’s box that has slowly been opening over the last few centuries. Humans have been a catalyst for the next mass extinction event. Imagine if our advancements in science, medicine, and technology didn’t exist. How would this pandemic have played out? It could have become a part of life where we tried to lead a life as normal as we had become accustomed to, while adapting to extraordinary circumstances as we did early in the pandemic. PANDEMICA is a snapshot of what ordinary life could look like in the future. A species trying to go about daily life while adjusting to the “new normal”. The PANDEMICA series was created early in the pandemic when society halted, sheltered in place, and the future was uncertain. It started as an Instagram project, a way to be creative and stay connected with the world outside of the family unit. Ordinary motions in extraordinary times. If we have learned anything from this go round with a global pandemic, it should be that we need to carefully look at what we are doing to this small rock hurdling through space. Will we have time to adapt to our rapid advancements, or will we be a part of the next mass extinction event?
