FUTURES - Studio Place Arts (SPA) is proud to participate in “Vermont’s “2020 Vision: Seeing the World through Technology” as Vermont museums of art, history, and science, as well as galleries and other exhibiting institutions, will collaborate on a suite of exhibitions around the theme. Here at SPA, we want to celebrate the role artists play in envisioning the future.
Science fiction artists often predict the future and its technology with surprising, and sometimes alarming accuracy. Space travel, electric vehicles and alternative energies, cloning and gene manipulation, weaponized drones, AI - these and many more made appearances in the art of science fiction long before they were realities. This show invites artists to share works of science fiction, in traditional and non-traditional media (proposals for installations are welcome). Whether your vision warns us of apocalyptic consequences of our actions, or offers innovative solutions for the problems of the modern world; whether your vision is based in science and technology, or borrows heavily from fiction, we want to see it! Ultimately, science fiction poses, and sometimes answers the question of who we are and where we may be going.
Artists, show us the future!
“As soon as you have an idea that changes some small part of the world you are writing science fiction. It is always the art of the possible, never the impossible.” -Ray Bradbury
“(but) the core of science fiction; its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.” -Isaac Asimov
Exhibit Dates: March 17 – May 2, 2020
Deadline for submissions: Fri., January 24, 2020
