The Future Emergent

 visual narratives for a planet in crisis and possibility


A physical exhibition, a website of imagery, and special online events!

Work by 12 artists suggests hints of sustenance as we live the unimaginable and seek radical possibility for the future. Weaving multiple strands, from an Afrofuturist vision to the algae fields of Hawaii to new seed pods in Northern California, we operate within the realm of speculative visioning:  changing the way we experience the present by seeing present as past and practicing the future we want.


This ventilated and no-touch exhibition at Dream Farm Commons will be open for  social bubble visits (1-4 people you live with or share air with), by appointment on select days from Jul 14 to Aug 29.


We ask you to wear a mask  and we will ritually clean after each clusters visit, making a safe space for all.

Featuring artists:

Amy Balkin, Lonny Brooks, Kevin Cooley, Alan Clark, David Huffman, Serena Elston, Delta_Ark, Tiare Ribeaux, Malik Seneferu, The Bureau for Linguistic Reality, Kytana Winn, and Connie Zheng
