As 2020 draws to a close, leaving a great many uncertainties in its wake, we asked our artists to respond to one big question: what art do we need now? They approached this question courageously, inviting us into their practices of working through lockdown, experimenting with unexpected forms, and in many cases, hanging on to optimism.

In “Art We Need Now,” a bedroom becomes the size of a storybook, postage stamps become as large as a flag, figures reach for connection, and inner thoughts become vast planes of space. As artists reflect on themes of urgency in a changing world, isolation in a chaotic city, and quite possibly hope for a future with a bit more beauty and love in it, we now open this conversation to you: what art do you need now? Come begin the discovery process with this exhibition of possible answers.

The Art Students League offers its great thanks to Peter Bonner and Anne Stanner for serving on the Instructor Review Committee to create this group show
