Recently, our friends at Chicago Gallery News wrote an article discussing different ways audiences can engage with art digitally. Communities are social distancing due to safety concerns regarding CODIV-19. As people stay indoors, we are making an effort to create new digital content that allows our audience to get up close and personal with our exhibitions—even if they can’t see them in person at the moment.
CEG has rolled out a collection of short, 30 second video clips of Daniel Beltrá discussing his exhibition “The Amazon,” which is currently on view through April 25, 2020. In each clip, Beltrá shares with us the story behind the making of the photograph—from his experience flying in a plane and photographing from above, to his emotional state while seeing the Amazon burning.
We are excited for this short, conversational format that we hope will allow our audience to immediately engage with what we have on view!
We also have a treasure trove of digital resources on our website, including videos of artist interviews, conversations with curators, and behind-the-scenes of exhibitions. So while if you are staying at home, we encourage you to explore our website!
And of course, don’t forget that we are still open! We are taking extra precautions with cleaning and disinfecting, and we also have Purell available to the public. Keep in mind that our gallery is 4400 square feet—so there is plenty of room to stay six feet away!
As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We would love to have you in the gallery, but if that is not possible, we are open to scheduling Facetime meetings. We have beautiful work on view and want to give everyone the opportunity to see it.
Thank you for your support and stay well!
