Curator's Note “The 6th issue of Circle Quarterly Art Review includes94 visual artists from around the globe working in a variety of styles and disciplines. This issue comes in an undeniably strange time; amidst a global pandemic, soaring political and social unrest worldwide, collapsing economies and a world order whose foundations are being questioned and increasingly re-evaluated. Although it seems that we are currently navigating a dark chapter of this journey, as history has shown we will come out of it better and stronger. Art has undoubtedly a lot to offer at this time and its function plays a fundamental role in shaping, experiencing and overcoming this crisis. That said, for me, two are the most important functions of art right now. Firstly, art provides a relief — an aesthetic escape from the exhausting reality both for the maker and the viewer. Secondly, artists right now are contributing to a visual chronicle of this important historical moment. In this sense, all art, whether created with the current events in mind or not, gains new meaning and purpose. I am very pleased to offer to you once again, the following pages, a unique collection of remarkable artworks worth collecting, and the newest chapter in the story of what art looks like today.”
