Virtual Artists Talks Series: Praveen K. Chaudhry on New York City: Pandemic, Resilience and Hope

March 25, 2021 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

NYC during the BLM protests

In March 2020, New York City came to a halt. As pandemic restrictions set in, streets were deserted, subways empty. In the summer, after the murder of George Floyd, Black Lives Matter protesters filled the city. Then, in November, the city celebrated the presidential election.

This Thursday, March 25, photographer and FIT Political Science Professor Praveen K. Chaudhry will share his images of this tumultuous year in a conversation with guest speaker and frequent collaborator Souzeina Mushtaq, assistant professor, University of Wisconsin–River Falls. The images are now on view as the virtual exhibition New York City: Pandemic, Resilience and Hope  through the Art and Design Gallery.

Chaudhry says, “Someday, hopefully, we will look back and ponder on how we got through this trauma and pain, how we moved on as 2020 makes its way in our history books and becomes a distant past.”

Visit the exhibition here.
