Art Off-Screen is an international exhibition, organized by Eileen Jeng Lynch, of artwork and performances in outward-facing locations around the world. Art is bringing together local communities on a global scale. In response to pause orders during the pandemic, Art Off-Screen showcases works that can be viewed from the outside by the community, providing access to art beyond a computer screen, encouraging dialogues, amplifying voices, inspiring creativity, and sharing messages of hope and healing.
Employing a variety of mediums and sites, artists create new work and/or explore new directions as well as ways of how their art is seen or experienced. Artists address issues surrounding the pandemic, racial violence, social injustice, climate change as well as reflections on their artistic practices, among other topics.
Entire Exhibition Period: July 18 – October 10, 2020.
Within this timeline, there is a roll out in phases (every two weeks) of more artists, so opening dates include: July 18, August 1, August 15, August 29, September 12, September 26
Inquiries will be directed to the artists, who would handle their own sales. At least 20% of proceeds go to the Artist Relief Fund, The Bail Project, Equal Justice Initiative, NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, The Loveland Foundation, or another cause of the artist’s choice. A limited quantity of postcards will be created and sold in assorted packs of 10, which support the various causes.
