COVID-19: Labor Camp Report at Mia

Faculty member Piotr Szyhalski's renowned COVID-19: Labor Camp Report will be on view in Mia's Gallery 370 through the summer.

On March 24, 2020, Szyhalski embarked on a daily drawing practice, responding to the COVID-19 pandemic as it unfolded in real-time. What began as a way for the artist to share observations of life in lockdown and the pain caused by the pandemic, soon became an exercise in chronicling his thoughts and feelings, reconciling them with the changes being wrought in the world.

COVID-19: Labor Camp Report consists of 225 drawings created over eight months, with new drawings posted daily on Instagram, a witness to the unfolding crisis and a record of time both labored and lost.
