2020 VISION

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.

THE COLLECTORS SALE – Benefit Art Sale Event

It continues! Many of the available works have been reinstalled behind the big wall in the back gallery, so you can still come and see them in person to help with your purchase decision making! 

While the season usually comes to a celebratory close with the annual SummerFest event, the current government restrictions prohibiting gatherings of groups of more than 50 has forced all non-profits to think outside the box and create a new approach to fundraising. With that, we are thrilled to announced

Artists and collectors were asked to contribute to this special fundraiser by generously donating a work or works of art. Over 80 artists and collectors have shown their support by donating 105 works. Now it is your turn to purchase them!

All proceeds from this fundraising art sale will allow SAC to continue its diverse slate of year-round programming.

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

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

Join Larissa Rhodes, producer of the new hit film, The Social Dilemma in conversation with Josh Golin and Jean Rogers Campaign for 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.
