Artist Cheryl Donegan checks in with CAMH Exhibitions Manager and Assistant Curator Patricia Restrepo during the Covid-19 pandemic.
About the Series
In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, we’re doing everything we can to flatten the curve — but even though the museum is closed, and we’re working from home, we still talk to artists around the world every day. Here in Houston, in Italy, in China, in San Francisco … artists, like all of us, are weathering the coronavirus personally and professionally.
We will bring these conversations with artists — wherever they are — to wherever you are.
About the Artist
Cheryl Donegan is an artist who works in painting, garments, and video. In 2016 she was the subject of a survey show called Scenes + Commercials at the New Museum in NYC. That exhibition expanded into My Plastic Bag at Kunsthalle Zurich. Following that, her exhibition GRLZ + VEILS appeared at the CAMH along with Aspen Art Museum. Throughout all these exhibitions, Donegan’s intersecting concerns from performance, to craft and DIY processes are threaded through a glimmering digital network. She lives in NYC with her family.
