Graphic by Robert Samec

I’ve read three and a half romantic comedy novels, watched two rom coms, and listened to five of the New York Times’ Modern Love podcast episodes this week. It’s cold out. Hot chocolate is being sold in packs of two at the impulse-buy station at the grocery store. I put my Spotify on Private Session

Playing Pretend: Impossible Exhibitions in the Time of COVID-19


Prologue In these past eight months of life under COVID-19, we have learned to navigate the unidirectional labyrinth of grocery store aisles, turned masks into precautionary fashion accessories, and transformed our homes into workplaces, schoolrooms, and even coffee shops.
