Through its commissions, TBA21 on st_age proposes to engage with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the United Nations. We are exploring the relationship between art as an agent of change and its impact on the increasingly urgent issues of our time. The works of some of the most generous and compelling artists of today can help contextualise the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and how they meet the challenges of the present without compromising future generations.
