Recalibrating the Art World in a COVID and Post-COVID World Website Event Calendar

MOCA Jacksonville's Ideas of Our Time series presents thoughtful and engaging dialogue with artists, educators, and others around some of the most vital and important art and ideas of our time. Join us July 22 for Recalibrating the Art World in a COVID & Post-COVID World with MOCA Jacksonville's Executive Director, Caitlín Doherty.


2020 was an unprecedented year around the world. In the United States, it was a year defined by several specific, yet interconnected, issues —a global pandemic; a deeply divisive Presidential election; an economic crisis not seen since the Great Depression; civil unrest focused on social justice and civil rights issues; and the resulting questioning of established systems of power. Every aspect of life has been affected, and the art world has been no exception. In this lecture, Caitlín Doherty reflects on some of the ways that artists and the art sector as a whole, have been challenged, how they have changed, and what these adaptations may point to in the years ahead.
