2020 VISION

Sat, Jul 25 - Sun, Dec 27

Presented by New York Academy of Art with Southampton Arts Center. Curated by David Kratz and Stephanie Roach, and edited by Emma Gilbey Keller.

Participating Sponsor: Douglas Elliman
Insurance Sponsor: AXA
Media Partner: Hamptons Magazine

Artists, writers, and creative thinkers were asked to consider three questions of critical importance: Our lives will never be the same, but what will change look like?  What do we want to keep as we rebuild? And what must we guard against?

We invited these creators to express what they saw, what they felt, and what they experienced during this time of pause and reassessment, upheaval and risk, and anxiety and uncertainty.  

It is our hope that 2020 Vision marks one of many beginnings in the necessary process of ‘post-traumatic growth’ and positive change for our society and our world.

Note to Visitors: 2020 Vision, by design, presents multiple artists’ perspectives and observations on all that has occurred in our society over the past year. Please use your discretion when visiting with children due to some mature content.

SAC Storefront Art Project: ALICE HOPE – Priceless

Thu, Nov 05 - Mon, Apr 05

We are thrilled to launch our first Storefront Art Project with artist Alice Hope and her new installation “Priceless”.

Located in the former Chico’s at 8 Jobs Lane, “Priceless” is a multimedia installation made with accordioned chromed coat hangers, strung can tabs, and shopping tags. So come take a stroll in the village and check out the first of a potential series of window art installations.

Thank you to Mayor Jesse Warren, the Trustees, and the Village of Southampton, the landlord of 8 Jobs Lane, and Morley Property Management for their support of this project.

Made possible, in part, thanks to the Long Island Community Foundation.

ZOOM Talk – The Social Dilemma: How Digital Media Undermines Young People’s Wellbeing & What We Can Do About It

Dec 09 7:00pm

Join Larissa Rhodes, producer of the new hit film, The Social Dilemma in conversation with Josh Golin and Jean Rogers of Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood. Featuring former Facebook, Google, and Twitter employees, The Social Dilemma reveals how the business model for digital media exacerbates some of the most pressing problems we face today, including misinformation, polarization, and a host of problems related to social media overuse. Not surprisingly, children and young people are most susceptible to the techniques social media companies use to keep us endlessly scrolling and posting.

Larissa, Jean and Josh will share clips from the film and discuss what we can do —  as families, communities, and a society – to keep digital media from interfering with children’s healthy development.

While it is recommended that attendees watch The Social Dilemma on Netflix prior to the December 9th discussion, it is not necessary.
