On view at the Austrian Cultural Forum New York and Undercurrent un/mute is the culmination of two online residencies launched in 2020 to provide European and NYC-based artists an opportunity for critical exchange and collaboration during the COVID-19 global pandemic.


What do communication and collaboration mean in a time of uncertainty and isolation? How is the artistic process impacted by going “fully remote”? In un/mute artists from 10 countries were paired to explore these questions. The project challenged teams to overcome the limitations of lockdowns as they connected across artistic mediums language culture generations and time zones to find new forms of expression and meaning within art.


un/mute is the physical manifestation of online conversations among strangers who became collaborators. What began as abstract ephemeral and digital are now 14 tactile analog and concrete artworks presented across two locations. The exhibition features sculptures installations films drawings photographs and performances created by artists who confronted the parameters imposed by the lockdowns and found creative solutions that we might all learn from.
