This event has ended.

The genre of science fiction, in all its various manifestations in books, television, music, and movies, has long provided a rich and valuable resource for artists who seek to critique contemporary society by looking forward. Science fiction transports us beyond the horizon of our current technologies and established ways of life in order to enable a renewed outlook on the present and, in particular, on today’s pressing political issues such as the environment, consumerist culture, and life during wartime. By envisioning possible ramifications of the technological, social, psychological, and political conditions of our current moment, the artists in this exhibition create works in sculpture, video, painting, and photography that are evocative of a daily existence quite distinct from our own.

    Future (Im)Perfect

    [The Future as Disruption] considers a global perspective on technological advancement and its impact on issues ranging from race and gender to economic exchange, but it is also relevant to the more localized anxieties of its New York audience.
