Romanian artist Dan Perjovschi responds to the recent local and global events with the series The Time of the Virus (2020) showcasted virtually at MOMA, being his comments on the current COVID-19 outbreak throughout the world. Expressing complex ideas in rapidly executed, off-the-cuff sketches, Perjovschi proposes that art can be engaged without being moralistic, as MOMA Museum states the Romanian artist’s work.

Dan Perjovschi previously collaborated with MOMA, in 2007, when Roxana Marcoci, senior curator of photography, invited the artist to create a site-specific drawing covering the east wall of MoMA’s Marron Family Atrium, as part of the ongoing Projects series.

The entire photo gallery representing the artist’s view on The Time of the Virus can be seen on the official website of the museum.

Previous this launching, in early March, Dan Perjovschi also donated one of his drawings to Italy’s fight with the pandemic, inviting through GAMeC to make a donation to help the hospital of Bergamo deal with the Covid-19 emergency.
