With physical distancing being a necessary safety measure due to COVID-19, the world has had to rethink the forms in which communities exist and how to foster community outside of social spaces. What does this mean for Papergirl, a project that is based in community and interaction? How will we bring people in contact with new communities and experiences without putting people's health at risk?
Papergirl-Brooklyn (PGBK) has replaced the artist workshops and interactive gallery exhibition with an open-air, multi-location, audio-guided, street exhibition. The exhibition will be accessible on public streets in ten Brooklyn neighborhoods. Visitors are encouraged to visit all locations. We hope that this exhibition will bring people to new neighborhoods and create new relationships between people and places.
