This innovative exhibition—a partnership between the Pandemic Journaling Project (PJP) and Seeing Truth: Art, Science, Museums, and Making Knowledge—will feature images created by people around the globe in telling their pandemic stories. At once devastating, joyful, funny, and tragic, the exhibition asks: What does a pandemic look like? What has COVID-19 helped us, or made us, see? How has it changed our sense of what counts as true—or whose truth
In addition to the PJP images, the Hartford History Center will display a selection of images from our Hartford 2020 collection, a collection of photographs by Hartford based photographers Andy Hart, Jasmine Jones, and Ray Shaw and capture Hartford’s public sphere in 2020: protests, parks, buses, testing clinics, and outdoor performances.
