Can art heal the world?

COVID-19 appeared in this world and it has restructured the way humans live. Such a sudden change forced everyone to find the right balance of living. This is a big and important ripple. Social distancing has created new patterns of interaction between urban society, countries and the world. Be that as it may, people from all walks of life still have to carry on with their lives whether they are businessmen, government officials, artists, singers, actors and many more.

The POST-COVID exhibition presents interpretations from 18 artists on the Coronavirus outbreak that started at the beginning of the year, which was the peak of the outbreak. Everyone knew about this virus. Later, several countries announced that they were successful in developing the vaccine. USA, Russia and India, who reported the news about the vaccine development, were among the top countries having a high number of infected patients. One good thing about the news about vaccine development, however, was that it gave people of the world some hope and eliminated some fear from them. I hope that this POST-COVID exhibition will enable people to see the roles and responsibility artists have for the society. — Tawatchai Somkong, curator
