April 28th Mardi Apéro Virtuel: Art in times of plague, by VeroDalla
Untreatable plagues were a regular part of human life for centuries. We took a quick artistic overview from the medieval Black Death through the Spanish flu and the HIV pandemics, followed by a virtual studio tour.
Sculptor and painter Véronique Anne Chabrolle, aka VeroDalla, was born in Burgundy, France. Her life centered around the world of gastronomy until an encounter with a poppy flower changed her existence forever. Her experience, returning from the brink of death during childhood, heavily influenced her artistic practice and mission. She lives in New York and creates at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City.
