Connected Isolation is a Niagara University student-curated exhibition that explores the human experience during the COVID-19 pandemic. During that time, we were physically isolated from people that we care about and had to learn to entertain ourselves, work from home, and adapt to the changing environment.
The exhibition focuses on both the darkness one can experience when isolated from others and the light we experience when spending time with the ones we love. The artworks chosen reflect our collective feelings of missed opportunities, isolation, fear, and hope.
This exhibition was curated by Niagara University course AHM 252A: Introduction to Museum Studies, a hands-on course that builds understanding for museums’ history, societal roles, and key functions.
Professor: Ellen M. Owens
Connected Isolation is made possible in part through the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
