by new release gallery:
the decameron was written by Giovanni Boccaccio in the 14th century during the black death in italy. the story tells us of ten young people who flee Florence during the epidemic and camp out at an abandoned chateau for two weeks. for ten of the days, they each tell a story, which amounts to 100 stories over the course of their quarantine. Mirroring this idea, over the course of ten days, New Release will present a curator (or story teller), who has gathered works by any number of artists, telling their own short stories of quarantine within their art making.
Sophie Murphy will be curating 'day 4'. [click the link ](http://www.newreleasegallery.com/decameron4/ "click the link")to learn more.
