New York Times culture writer Sophie Haigney takes a survey of what is happening in digital art and shares the “unexpected joys of the lockdown”.

From the article published Aug. 26, 2020: “With the closures of museums around the world, we’ve been kept at an odd distance from physical artwork. Though some American museums have started to reopen, many more remain in limbo, as their leaders attempt to figure out how to keep staff and visitors safe; their absence leaves strange, sad holes in weekend afternoons that used to be filled with in-person perusing of paintings, sculptures and photographs.”
