Read a full transcript of the interview here.

What does it mean to be in isolation, but in isolation together? In this first edition of our new podcast series Faraway, so close, we take a personal look at solitude, creativity and the arts under COVID-19, talking with Archibald-winning artist Yvette Coppersmith and executive director of Artspace, Alexie Glass-Kantor.

“We’re just going to have to be more accountable, more present, more determined, to be open to creating space for complexity, contradiction and difference, and for supporting communities who are most affected and most vulnerable to the turbulences of the moment we find ourselves in…” says Alexie Glass-Kantor when thinking of creative life beyond COVID-19.
