Containment: Stories of Art in Isolation is an art exhibition in San Francisco, put on by the national Young Women’s Caucus (YWC) focusing on the work of emerging non-binary and women artists at Arc Gallery.

Containment displays the work of artists during the pandemic. We asked creatives to consider what art-making during isolation looked like, did it alter their practice in any way? Our goal with the exhibition is to construct a cohesive narrative by stringing together all of these individual stories. We want to use moments like this to remind us all that we have more in common than not, that we are not alone in our experiences, even in the midst of lockdown and isolation. Now that we are reopening the city we would like to revisit last year’s experience one last time to bring us into re-opening feeling more connected and understanding of what we went through collectively.

We hope that many get to see and reflect on the work that we have put together for this exhibit.
