I got a text from a friend asking if I wanted to come to an exhibition. She sent me the exhibition text and said that she couldn’t stay long, but that we should head over.
I had no idea what she was talking about.
By this point in lockdown, we’re all getting fairly used to referring to virtual meetings, videochats, zoom hangouts, as ‘going out/to’ things, but I just couldn’t find the context clues for the platform in question. Without the obvious Zoom link or website address, it took me back to the beforetime, and actually a lot longer than the beginning of this year. It had the subtle but distinct hint of a time when I would go to private views and show openings with friends as a student. Not really sure where you’re going, or what you’re going to see, but keen to follow the trail of information that’s been passed through several hands to you.
