About this event

One of Canada’s first public commemorations of the pandemic, COVID in the House of Old is a poignant multimedia installation. This exhibition acknowledges the thousands of seniors who died in care homes or endured months of isolation, the staff who faced an overwhelming burden of care, and the families and friends unable to visit or help their loved ones.

Join exhibition creator, York University Professor Dr. Megan J. Davies via Zoom Webinar at 1 pm PST on January 14, 2022 for an artist talk and virtual launch.

During this special event, Davies will take guests on a tour of the online exhibit and share from her interviews with long term care residents, family members, and care workers she met while constructing the project.
