Being in quarantine has been a challenge for many, especially because there are only so many things we can do at home. While many tourist attractions and shopping centres have closed during the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, museums and art galleries have decided to put paintings, sculptures and installations online, so people can access art without leaving their homes. 

Instead of digitising a physical art show, Japanese photographer Herbie Yamaguchi has curated a free online-exclusive exhibition called ‘Stay Home’ on the ArtSticker app. The show invites photographers around the world to contribute by sharing photos taken from their homes. Whether it’s a photo of their bedroom, their breakfast, pets or even a view from the window, Yamaguchi hopes that this will give artists and viewers an opportunity to get creative while staying indoors.

The exhibition is completely free, however, if you want to support any of the contributing artists, you can simply click on the ‘support’ button to donate anywhere from ¥120 to ¥12,000.

'Stay Home' currently boasts over 140 photographs by 38 artists and will run until May 6. If you'd like to contribute, simply sign up for a free membership on the ArtSticker app and submit up to five pieces to toi@t-c-m.art, along with your name, portfolio, exhibition history and awards, and username before May 3.
