To Intervene at a Distance is an online discussion with selected artists from the virtual exhibition Sites of Fracture: Diasporic Imaginings of Occupied Artsakh (launching April 19, 2021). Selected artists from Sites of Fracture will gather for a lightning round of five-minute presentations addressing the question: As diasporan cultural workers, how do we intervene in crises at a distance? Artists’ presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A moderated by the exhibition’s co-curators.
