“Futures Present has been conceived as a show that will encourage artists to reflect on the uncertainties as well as the possibilities of the present. A number of scholars have suggested that a state of permanent instability is one of the defining characteristics of our age. They identify a number of factors that work together in such a way that our life-worlds are in a constant state of flux. Among other changes, the accelerated pace of technological evolution, the world of real time media and instantaneous feedback, body-machine interfaces and the rise of artificial intelligence, have essentially left us without the necessary cognitive tools with which to orient ourselves in this endlessly mutating present. As if in response to this chronic instability of our age, over the last few decades we have also seen an exponential increase in all manner of fundamentalisms and forms of political violence related to it.

In such a state of affairs, art gains renewed importance in a number of ways. It can function as a form of critique, and help us understand the present in all its complexity by alerting us to its contradictions and fault lines. It can also open up possibilities of an affirmative praxis, in its imaginative recasting of the historical vectors that make up the present; by inventing new forms of thought and affective identification, it strives to create new modes of community that are not based on narrow sectarian interests. The current show is therefore an invitation to reflect on these pressing questions that animate the present moment, as well as to critically reflect upon the place of art and creativity in imagining possible futures within it.” - Sathyanand Mohan

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue to be published during Part II of the exhibition, with text by Sathyanand Mohan. 

We look forward to welcoming you.
