We’re pleased to launch the first of eight new artist posters featuring projects by Michael Dumontier & Neil Farber, Lenka Clayton, Séamus Gallagher and Melanie Colosimo. They are each autonomous works, but can also be read collectively through the lens of the pandemic, with subject matter such as fear, safety and mortality.
Terrified is a photo from my ongoing series "Dear Friend", featuring my paper drag persona partaking in trivial/recreational domestic activities, such as day-drinking, doomscrolling, taking selfies, doing dishes, etc.-- Séamus Gallagher
