JOTPY Gets a Grant

JOTPY is delighted to announce that we received a 2021-2022 SK Arts Independent Artist program grant collective application to produce, tour and promote further exhibitions that build on the success of our installation, Journal of the Plague Year. As the installation is a time-based project, we will also add new work that continues to chronicle the pandemic: the politics, environment, social justice, and emotional temperature of the times.

We’re excited about developing this work-in-progress further, keeping it up-to-date, and re-imagining it for new audiences and settings. We will also produce a Journal of the Plague Year exhibition catalogue.

If you would like JOTPY to visit your city or you have a suggestion for a venue that might want to host it, contact us at
