In collaboration with ART 2030, partnering galleries and arts organizations participated by hosting after-hours openings, panel discussions and special events.

"Art can be a powerful agent for change. 303 Gallery is proud to partner with ART 2030 in support of a shared vision of a more sustainable future,” Lisa Spellman, Founder and Director, 303 Gallery

For the first edition of ART 2030 New York, leading Chelsea art galleries united to welcome UN delegates, the art community, and the public to extended public hours during the week of the United Nations’ General Debate, to foster discussion, engagement and advocacy towards the Global Goals through art.


Connecting exhibitions, artists’ oeuvres and each gallery’s own values, after-hours viewings offered a chance for audiences to experience art though the lens of the Global Goals.


Participating galleries:


303 Gallery, Cheim & Read, David Zwirner, Gagosian, Galerie Lelong & Co., Gladstone Gallery, Hauser & Wirth, James Cohan Gallery, Lisson Gallery, Luhring Augustine, Metro Pictures, Pace Gallery, Petzel, and Tina Kim Gallery.

The first gallery event of ART 2030 New York, hosted by Gagosian with Bottletop, focused on the topic of Equality, with specific attention to Global Goal 5, Gender Equality. How is it that this seminal issue is still a divisive topic in 2018? And how can both individual and collective action, through creative means, work to resolve some of the broader issue’s many related biases?


The Panel was moderated by Johanna Burton (Director and Curator of Education and Public Engagement, New Museum), and joined by Mary Weatherford (Artist), Ulla Tørnæs (Danish Minister for Development Cooperation), and Cameron Saul (Founder of Bottletop and #TOGETHERBAND).

“The Global Goals address important issues that we all as citizens should be aware and take ownership of. I believe that art can be used as a tool to expand people’s minds and reflections. And I believe that everyone should have access to art,” Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen, Artist

Monday, September 24th:


A unique version of the performance Tow with the Flow (2018) by Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen is commissioned specifically for this year’s program.


Working closely with local students from New Design High School as co-creators of this New York rendition, the performance features custom-made uniforms created by sustainable Scandinavian design studio sur le chemin inspired by the colors of the 17 Global Goals. Through performative acts such as collecting, sharing and dressing, the artwork draws attention to the business of fashion and its culture of mass consumption.
