'Sequelism...' is an exhibition reflecting on the future and that which is yet to happen. It looks at the political, social and ecological implications of the inexact arena of futurology: the science and interdisciplinary practice of postulating possible, probable, and preferable futures from the present.

The future is commonly manifested in popular cultural forms, including science fiction, yet how might we look beyond the present without recourse to established genres? To what extent does strategic foresight affect our understanding of the now, the ‘then’ or the ‘when’? Is the future a culturally specific phenomenon, that is inherently Western in its gaze and orientation? + info...

This is the first in a trilogy of Sequelism exhibitions, with Part 2 in 2010. More on
