Nine year old Emmanuel began filming himself and his family with a home video camera in 1999, capturing his Washington D.C. neighborhood through the eyes of an innocent child. Growing up just 17 blocks from the U.S. Capitol, however, proved more difficult than one might expect. Director Davy Rothbart began filming the members of the Sanford-Durant family after he met Emmanuel and his older brother in 1999 at a local basketball court and befriended them as they continued to document their daily life over two decades in a city plagued by poverty, addiction and gun violence.

Davy Rothbart is a journalist, best-selling author, Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, creator of Found Magazine, and contributor to public radio’s This American Life. His latest documentary, Medora, aired on PBS and won a 2015 Emmy News & Documentary Award. He’s the founder of Washington To Washington, an annual hiking trip for city kids.

2020 VISION

Saturday Jul 25 - Sunday 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. Artists and writers are always the antennae of our society, all the more so at a time as challenging as this one.  They have an opportunity—some might say, a duty—to interpret this moment and imagine the world not only as it is, but also as it could be. This is the guiding challenge of the group exhibition, 2020 Vision.  We asked artists, writers, and creative thinkers 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.
