Virtual Art Bite: Until Proven Safe
Join us for an exploration of the landscapes of quarantine with authors—and Center for Art + Environment advisors—Geoff Manaugh and Nicola Twilley. Their new book, Until Proven Safe, was begun long before COVID-19. Together, they track the history and future of quarantine around the globe, chasing the story of emergency isolation through time and space—from the crumbling lazarettos of the Mediterranean, built to contain the Black Death, to an experimental Ebola unit in London, and from the hallways of the CDC to closed-door simulations where pharmaceutical execs and epidemiologists prepare for the outbreak of a novel coronavirus.
