The pandemic has forced us all to question and reimagine the way our society functions. Against the backdrop of a global health crisis and a changing socio-political landscape, seven students share experiences and reflections of the last two years to ask themselves and each other: are we okay?
The project was conceived by a collective of fourth-year students from the Art & Art History Program, a joint program between Sheridan College and U of T Mississauga. While brainstorming ideas, the collective unanimously agreed that being cautious was not an option; they had to confront what has been happening in the world as a way into their work.
Cathartic and personal, these projects reflect their shared and unique perspectives.
