Abstract

Photographic work from Billingham's series 'Ray's a Laugh' was exhibited in 'Home: Live > In Room' at the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, (31 August 2020 – 3 January 2021). The exhibition was curated virtually from the Hiscox Collection by Whitechapel Galleries Youth Forum called 'Duchamp and Sons' It considered the ways in which lockdown due to the COVID 19 pandemic lockdown has affected experiences of art and culture and in searching for ways to stay connected explored ideas of home and asked 'what makes a community?' The exhibition asked questions such as what role might art play when human freedom is interrupted? What does it mean to curate from laptops and screens? Can confinement trigger new creative processes and networks of solidarity? Besides Billingham, other artists included Richard Billingham, Edward Burtynsky, Gregory Crewdson, Peter Doig, Barbara Kasten, Agnieszka Kurant, Langlands and Bell, Lisa Oppenheim, Trevor Paglen and Cornelia Parker.
