P·P·O·W Gallery Spotlights Artworks Made Amidst Ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic

As part of an online viewing room called “Days Soon to Fade.”

In these uncertain times, New York-based P·P·O·W Gallery continues to support local artists with a new online viewing room titled “Days Soon to Fade.” The presentation features works on paper by Kyle Dunn, Aaron Gilbert, Elizabeth Glaessner, among others.

A majority of the pieces spotlighted in the digital presentation were made amidst the ongoing health crisis or selected with the coronavirus pandemic in mind. Take for instance the namesake, figurative work for the show: Devin N. Morris’s Endangered Were These Days Soon To Fade. Intarsia 5, 2020 . The artist explores the challenges that arise when confined in a domestic space, both physically and psychologically. The composition features a topless male subject sitting on a chair and facing the window in a living room space.

“These works reinforce the gallery’s longstanding commitment to championing artistic practices that explore issues of race, gender, sexuality, and social equality,” explained P.P.O.W. in a statement.

P·P·O·W will donate a portion of all proceeds towards the Urban Justice Center’s Domestic Violence Project. The organization brings together lawyers, advocates, social workers and volunteers whose mission is to help survivors of domestic violence and their children live free of violence and abuse.

Head to P·P·O·W’s website for more details and check out select works above.
