Exhibiting in the gallery April 15-28
Future House can serve as a representation of the future and also of the past. How we as a society are finding new ways to exist and co-exist in a world that is not what it used to be is at the cornerstone of a continuous conversation. Future House builds on developing pathways to restoration. This tool can help us to bring our shared experiences together as we emerge through this pandemic pandemonium.
The objective to create a visual representation of whatthe future will hold is ultimately an important task for the viewer. ‘What will the future look like and how will the communities situated within them interact with one another?’ are some good questions to consider as nations strive to navigate both honestly and respectfully, the difficulties associated with our times and how the approaching ‘future’ will ultimately sustain us when we are at our most vulnerable.
