Exhibition curated by David Liss, director of Museum of Canadian Contemporary Art (MOCCA)
The future of our species.
Given our increasingly intimate relationship with technology, experiments with genetic modification, and the widespread introduction of chemicals and pharmaceuticals into the food chain, it seems apparent that our species will need to evolve and adapt physically in order to survive.
The 20th Century imagined man/machine hybrids, cyborgs and the extraterrestrial. For the exhibition, taking place at Propeller in October 2004, the guest curator is seeking artworks in any media that thematically speculate upon our appearance and physical characteristics several more links along in the Darwinian evolutionary chart of natural selection; post-post figurative, so to speak.
The resulting exhibition is related to a cycle of research, exhibitions and projects developed by the guest curator, exploring cultural and artistic speculations upon the future of the human condition. The first exhibition in this series, titled Future Species, took place at the d.u.m.b.o. arts center in Brooklyn, New York, from June 27th to August 10th, 2003.
