Conceived and produced by Vaari Claffey, Isolation TV is a platform for showing artists’ work, an exhibition-making site and a collaborative para-institution.

Isolation TV begins as response to quarantine and social distancing, during the Covid19 pandemic and consequent closing of Museums and Galleries, forcing the suspension or cancellation of many exhibitions and trapping works of art in empty buildings, unseen. We are very grateful to the artists for letting us show you their work in this way, and to our collaborators and supporters for responding so quickly and imaginatively to the project.

Realized in partnership with the Salzburger Kunstverein, with curatorial collaboration from Séamus Kealy, Director. Forthcoming supporters and collaborators include Grazer Kunstverein and Golden Pixel.
