Former SVPs Elizabeth Shaffer and Jeffrey Abramson will now serve as co-presidents. Gen Art’s first event of the year will be the 16th annual Gen Arts Film Festival in New York celebrating emerging North American filmmakers. The film submission process is underway and selections will be announced mid-May for the June event. The Fresh Faces in Fashion program, which launched in 1995, returns this September with New York Fashion Week. Designers including Zac Posen, Rebecca Taylor, Phillip Lim, Vena Cava, Twinkle, and Geren Ford have made their debut with Gen Art.
