Exhibition Description

In March 2020, my neighbourhood of Queens, New York became the epicentre of the COVID-19 outbreak.  

Through unusual circumstances, I found myself living in my two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment with my 86-year-old mother from Florida and my ex-wife from Los Angeles.  
We couldn't go out to shop for food, and it seemed like I couldn't even take a bath without my mother or my ex-wife walking in on me.  
I documented our confinement using a good dose of humour. It started as a temporary project and lasted an entire year.   
Quarantine in Queens is a personal commentary on caregiving, love, and family responsibility. What started as a personal Instagram series has gone viral worldwide. 


This exhibition is outdoors. Please check what COVID-19 restrictions are in place before you visit.
