where is the future?
opening reception: Friday, January 31, 7pm–10pm
exhibition runs February 1–March 8, 2020
First Friday artwalks: February 7 and March 6, 7–11pm
What do artists imagine now that we’re in this futuristic-sounding year? Are there new imagined futures? Retro-futures? Hopes or laments for the present day and beyond? “Space: 1999,” “2001: a space odyssey,” and “Bladerunner” set in 2019, are among many visually influential TV and films that put 2020 far into fantastic futures. Local artists responded in a wide range of media to these and other temporal quandaries with 200 works of art.
