We're all in this together  

July 20 2020 - Ongoing 

The OG

The inaugural edition of the Online Gallery’s zine is themed around
the commonly repeated mantra “we’re all in this together”. Indeed
we are all experiencing this pandemic together, but it has unveiled
the many varied disparate realities of life throughout our social and
economic structures.

Twelve artists responded to “we’re all in this together” ranging from
uplifting (yet unsanctioned) Street installations, fictional e-art fair
experiences, absurd acts of bureaucracy, works and writings about
community, isolation, and the insidious nature of systemic racism.

Black Helmet (Azikiwe Mohammed), Pajtim Osmanaj, Carlos, Rosales-Silva, Tahir Karmali, So&so, Joeun Kim AATCHIM, Matthew Day Perez, Beau Rhee, Justine Kablack, Sam Chun, Martyna, Szczesna, Justin Chance​
