Subliminal Projects is pleased to present, Out of Touch, a year-long online group exhibition to benefit nonprofits and organizations aiding the global needs of the COVID-19 health crisis. The exhibition highlights artists from around the world whose work involves themes of touch, intimacy, texture, crowd behavior, or more abstract concepts of human interaction, drawing attention to the universal existential re-evaluation of touch during the pandemic.
The human instinct to greet others with a hug, the vibration of a room filled with people, the texture of a piece of fruit from the grocery store, the very idea of how we connect with the world on a physical level takes on new meaning in the throes of a pandemic. Out of Touch, presents a variety of works possessing these themes aimed to ignite questions, thoughts, feelings, or even anxieties, of how we move forward and process a new cognizance of what we touch, how we protect ourselves, and each other.
