Imaging the Future
Gallery Project presents Imaging the Future, a multimedia exhibit in 27 artists, architects, engineers, scientists, and fashion designers attempt to visualize what life in the future will be like. The exhibit, which opens on Wednesday, May 5 and runs through Sunday, June 13, is the first of Gallery Project’s new cycle of exhibits (see the website: thegalleryproject.com). The opening reception is Friday, May 7 from 6-9.
Questions about the future abound: “What is going to happen to my town, to Michigan, to my country, my world? What’s ahead for the environment, global warming, the energy crisis, and green technology? What’s next for Wall Street, Main Street, the housing market, the world financial system, my job? How will technological advances impact communication, transportation, housing, food, clothing, weaponry, play, and identity? Will we have colonies in space or on distant planets and moons, and will we be encouraged to travel there? What will become of our species and other species as we evolve?
Depending on one’s vision and vantage point, such questions may activate anxiety, fear, cynicism and dark visions. Or they may mobilize a sense of hope and promise, idealism and utopian imaginings. This exhibition challenges each artist to pose a question about the future and to image a response.
Contributors to the exhibit include: Heather Accurso, Architecture Research Office, Peter Baker, Basement6, Sarah Buckius, Rocco DePietro, Fred Dyer, John Ganis, Xia Gao, John Hart, Mark Hereld, Nicole Jacquard, Andrew Jones, Addie Langford, Lois Lovejoy, Paul Marquardt, Leslie Mutchler, Brian Nelson, Gloria Pritschet, Megan Reynard, David Rueter, Bethany Shorb, Yvette Kaiser Smith, Alex Sobolev, Nick Sousanis, R. Justin Stewart, Valerie Wahna, and Michael Yun. The exhibit is curated by Gloria Pritschet and Rocco DePietro.
