Looking Backwards, Looking Forwards. How has 2020 affected you? What changes do you want to see in 2021 and the future? This exhibition showcases the different views we’ve had of the same 2020, highlighting the personal experiences of teens in New York City. A year unlike many before it. A pandemic leaving everyone working, learning, and socializing differently, making many feel isolated. Wake up call protests against the injustices handed to us by authorities. A controversial election. The overwhelming impact of climate change. How has this past year impacted your life? What could our futures look like? This exhibition seeks to provide answers to these questions.
