FROM KOLAJ 29
Life in the Cool Zone of History
In the Kolaj 29 Editorial, Ric Kasini Kadour reflects on “Life in the Cool Zone of History,” a period in history where everything feels possible and “big things” define history’s forward movement.
“For many artists, The Great Pause and the COVID-19 pandemic afforded a much needed inflection point. Free, for better or worse, from day-to-day obligations, huddled in our homes, this was an opportunity to lean into art artmaking,” he writes. “Being able to turn to art is a gift. There, in the safety of our studios, we tried to come to terms on what was happening to the world and how we felt about it, to find our voice again when the pandemic cut us off mid-sentence.”
