Open Call 2025 sm.jpg

The Road Ahead is an exciting group exhibition at RIVAA Gallery on Roosevelt Island, showcasing the best works of Gen-Z artists. This open call invites young creators to submit their most compelling pieces, providing a platform for their raw thoughts and feelings.

We ask Gen-Z artists: Why do you make art? How do you want to change the art world? How do you navigate a future of uncertainty and fear? This exhibition aims to showcase your diverse insights about the landscape of tomorrow's art world.

Curated by Elena Jordan, Amazia Thompson, and Tiko El Outa, The Road Ahead will feature a vibrant collage of diverse works. An international panel of jurors will select the top Gen-Z artists from New York City, fostering a collaborative environment for the next generation.

Join us at RIVAA Gallery for The Road Ahead and experience the bold and innovative visions of tomorrow's artists.
