Curated by Guest Curator Amanda Jirón-Murphy

We Can’t Predict Tomorrow is a glimpse into the unexpected ways nine artists approached the relentless tumult of the COVID-19 global pandemic. In sculpture, photography, installation, drawing, and painting, the works reveal themes that have taken on a heightened urgency under the duress of the prolonged quarantine and isolation in the U.S.: issues of social justice, climate change, and the intense longing for sanctuary, community, and shared experiences. The works in We Can’t Predict Tomorrow offer a way to heal from the trauma of the past year while simultaneously forging a joyful path into the future. Experienced together, these works transport visitors through a time when humanity lived at the knife’s edge of uncertainty and found ways to not only survive, but to keep on living.
