LOOKING OUT

curated by Alex Young
Miller ICA @ Carnegie Mellon University
Spring 2020

Looking Out was a photo and video series, originally created in the Spring of 2020 for Instagram's IGTV platform, featuring works by Pittsburgh artists created through their respective windows while sheltering-in-place at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. This series envisioned and questioned new forms of commons that emerged during the experience of sheltering-in-place.  Looking Out   sought to provoke subtle mutualistic expressions  of collectivity and solidarity amidst a time of isolation that has left a lasting impact on the present.
