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.
