Ten Futures finds its theme perched between the science fiction genre and the futures unfolding around us in real time. Through drawings, photographs, video, sculptures, garments, short stories, and a video game, the artists in the exhibition daydream, fear for, and build their own imagined worlds.
The term science fiction can be defined simply by reversing the phrase: fiction based on science. As technology expands at an exponential rate, so do the imaginations of those using it. Issues of access, class, race, gender, and sexuality become hardwired into the softwares and devices being made today. Are the scientists and designers creating these technologies with queer and non-binary people in mind? What about POCs? Women? Witches? Artists? The artists in Ten Futures use the sci-fi genre to make sense of, escape from, and question their own 21-century realities and the futures they hold.
