Following the closure of University due to COVID-19 and the loss of access to studios and equipment, four university students created an online platform final year students in the U.K. to showcase their work that would have under different circumstances been exhibited at The Final Year Degree Show. Within the first few days of their instagram account going live, I submitted 5 photographs of my recent work, and an artist statement that would give people an insight into my practice and work I have produced this last year.
My work is showcased on their instagram page https://www.instagram.com/p/B982tlwg-vl/ and on their website https://www.thesocialdistanceartproject.co.uk/gallery1/leanne-galloway.
It has been incredible to see artists from all over the country come together, share, like and comment on each others work. In such a difficult and uncertain time, The Social Distance Art Project is an amazing platform to support each other and allow us to still display our work in preparation for post graduate work/study.
