Stunning COVID-19 Art Videos by Colorado Filmmakers Win Awards from Black Cube Nomadic Art Museum

Updated: Apr 29

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a lot to the surface. Beyond the numbers, daily news updates, closing of businesses, and overall anxiety, we've also seen some beauty in a tragic time. Animal adoptions are up, pollution is down, and artists are leading us into a modern renaissance. Public spaces that were once busy are empty, which gives a golden opportunity to filmmakers.

This month, 10 Colorado artists were awarded Video Art Awards from Black Cube, a nomadic art museum based in Colorado. These films reflect the messages and themes of quarantine, isolation, loss, and beauty, giving viewers a sense of kinship during unprecedented times. Along with the awards, Black Cube was able to give winners $200 each to support them during the pandemic through private grants and fundraising. Black Cube is featuring each artist's film on their Vimeo Channel, for anyone to watch.

The videos provide reflection on the vital themes of isolation, quietude, repetition and routine, death, intimate environments, and escapism. All works were produced in the last year, with select videos produced during the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent quarantine.
