Alumni Western Be Extraordinary The Campaign For Western

McIntosh Gallery FUTURISMS
Saturday, October 21, 2017
12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

McIntosh Gallery, Western University

Gallery

The exhibition Futurisms draws inspiration from the influential speculations on “cosmic consciousness” by London, Ontario-based radical psychiatrist R.M. Bucke (1837-1902), who envisioned a utopian future of social transformation and augmented intelligence. Treating the gallery as a laboratory for visual experimentation, curator Adam Lauder brings together Toronto-based artists Luis Jacob, Jay Isaac, Olia Mischenko, Turner + Pirbhai, and Young & Giroux to both recover and challenge the avant-garde’s potential to engage and transform the social. The artists employ distinct yet complementary strategies to elaborate critical perspectives on the recent and distant past while weaving futural fictions.
