How would quarantine be without art? No movies, no series, no music? There were times when the only thing to take us outside was a beautiful image or even a good book.

As Dostoyevsky said, “Beauty will save the world.”

We invite you to see how all the chaos of this harsh pandemic reality has been transformed into beauty by 30 emerging artists, in ART IS THE CURE exhibition that will take place at the celebrated Tribeca ONE ART SPACE gallery on October 8th – 12th.

Following all the protocols of safety and social distance, START SHOWS brings you a select sample of the effect that this unique moment of humanity will have on the world of art. As history has already taught us, in times of war and pain we have the chance to show our best, in the face of the ugliest realities, art has been more prolific, redeeming the spirit of time and healing souls.

We are sure that Artists are a part of the list of essential workers. Come and give your support to those who have not given up their passion.
