14 days / 14 artists
For a period of 14 days –from March 23 to April 5, 2020– 14 Spanish artists transformed the confinement caused by the Coronavirus into creative material.
Promoted by the Consulate General of Spain in New York, this project aims to show how Spanish artists were working and what they were creating during the quarantine. We also wanted to distract you during this difficult period, get inspired, and feel connected and busy. Finally, it served as an encouragement for you to bring out your most creative side, and present the work you made during that time on social networks with the #14Dias14Artistas hashtag.
Please note that some of the videos are in Spanish.
