Opening: 05.08.2010 7-9pm
One of the artist’s great gifts is that of vision. I’m not only talking about the
pleasurable and wonderfully important sense of the visual, but also how art provides
us with the sense of possibility of ‘another’ future. Envisioning a possibility puts us
that much closer to attaining it. If art can be used as a tool to expand the mind and
redirect consciousness, how does the artist convince a viewer that this tool is not
an end in itself?
The artistic responses to the question “what does the future look like?” as
evidenced by the works in 50 Artists Photograph The Future, are surprising and
invigorating: the future looks like the present reality of an obsolescent past; it looks
like something we are moving toward and away from; it is abstract and it is physical.
With a sense of hope, it does not discount the past, but rather accommodates for
past failures and their ultimate corrections as we move forward.
