“The aim of the dreamer, after all, is merely to go on dreaming and not to be molested by the world. His dreams are his protection against the world. But the aims of life are antithetical to those of the dreamer, and the teeth of the world are sharp.” - James Baldwin
In 2020, the aims of life have felt antithetical to those of the dreamers, yet artists have gone on creating, imagining, persisting, showing us that transformation occurs from within uncertainty. The unstable yet steady flow of concept, style, medium, and subject matter express not only the precarity of our experience but also hope. Art-making in these spaces is the ultimate optimism, a belief in the world continuing so that eventually, somewhere in the future, the creative act elicits a response outside of itself.
