"Artists Reach Out: reflections in a time of isolation" was born "out of grief for my work both as a documenting arts writer and curator of live performance. In this time of social distancing, we are called to responsibly do all we can to safeguard ourselves and our neighbors," says Eva Yaa Asantewaa, Editorial Director and Senior Director of Artist Development & Curation at Gibney.
