On view at the ACFNY and Undercurrent through January 7, 2022, “un/mute” is the culmination of two online residencies launched in 2020 to provide European and NYC-based artists an opportunity for critical exchange and collaboration during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Co-curated by Daina Mattis and Melinda Wang, “un/mute” is the physical manifestation of online conversations among strangers who became collaborators. What began as abstract and digital are now 14 tactile, concrete artworks presented across two locations. The exhibition features sculptures, installations, films, drawings, photographs, and performances created by artists who confronted the parameters imposed by the lockdowns and found creative solutions that we might all learn from.

Open hours: ACFNY, 10 am-6 pm daily; Undercurrent, 1-7 pm Thursday-Sunday; free admission
