Six weeks ago, while experiencing quite extreme bouts of loneliness and touch starvation in quarantine, I put out a call to some of my closest friends and collaborators, asking for brief responses to the prompt: "If you could send anything forward in time to a post-pandemic world, what would it be?" I had the idea to curate a digital media gallery with all of the responses, attempting some form of love, light, and togetherness during these periods of darkness and uncertainty.

A lot has happened since then.

 

In solidarity​ with the Black Lives Matter movement and protests against anti-Black racism and police brutality, we postponed our June 01 launch indefinitely, and then re-opened our submissions specifically to Black, Indigenous, Artists of Colour, outreaching to groups and organizations across the world and, as a result, meeting so many wonderful creative humans behind some of the works showcased here today.

 

We as an ad-hoc organization realize that this is not the time to be complacent; it is the time to take action and use our platforms, however small, to promote real, tangible change in the way that we view and engage with the art world. For us, that started here, with this project.

And so, as Creator/Curator of INTERMISSIONS, I would like to thank the 90+ contributors involved in the process, who submitted such beautiful works, from the bottom of my heart. This project is what it is because of you. I am so grateful to have worked and collaborated with each and every one of you.

I don't think there's anything else for me to say here because the galleries truly speak for themselves. I am just overwhelmed with gratitude, and hope that this project brings you the awe and sense of togetherness and solidarity that it did me. 

Please stay healthy and safe. I'll see you all soon.

- Camille Intson, Creator/Curator
