Being Human 2020
Queen Mary University of London is putting on an exhibition of art and stories to share people’s experience of the Covid-19 pandemic as part of Being Human Festival. The theme for Being Human Festival 2020 is 'New Worlds'; this exhibition aims to bring people together, to share people's experiences of Covid-19, to understand how we can live in this new world with Covid-19.
The exhibition will feature visual art and creative writing that represents people's experience of the Covid-19 pandemic. This is not exclusive to the experience of having Covid-19 but may also include the social implications, such as lockdown, social distancing, and wearing masks. The event will consist of a physical magnet exhibition, held outside Queen Mary University of London Mile End campus (E1 4NS) from 14th November, an online exhibition of Covid-19 themed art that will be released online via social media throughout the Being Human festival, and an evening of online storytelling on Friday 20th November 17.30 - 19.30.
This event is part of the national Being Human festival of the humanities, which is taking place in over 50 towns and cities across the UK between 12-22 November.
Being Human is the only national festival dedicated entirely to celebrating research across the humanities – from archaeology, art history, history, classics, languages, philosophy, literature and more. The festival aims to make the humanities accessible and fun for all, and is run by the School of Advanced Study, University of London in partnership with the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the British Academy.
Creating art without boundaries - Exhibition Details:
This year the prize is co-presented by Justice Centre Hong Kong and the European Union Office of Hong Kong & Macao. Originally launched by Justice Centre Hong Kong in 2013, the prize plays a pivotal role in discovering and encouraging Hong Kong-based artists to explore the state of human rights both at home and abroad. Importantly it provides a platform for artists to create work without boundaries to magnify the impact and exposure of their stories.
Come join us to celebrate the powerful stories of Hong Kong artists and help us raise much-needed funds to ensure Justice Centre’s essential work within the community can continue into 2019.
