Date & Time
"The pain, loss and uncertainty of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The awakening cry for social justice following the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery and many others.
The unnerving possibility of global recession.
2020 has already experienced seismic events that are shifting values and shaping our choices as citizens and as creators.
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.
