Pre-Future is an online exhibition that serves as a guide to a speculative temporality in which the future has superseded the present. This time complex, which has been described as the “post-contemporary,” is a result of accelerated economies and preemptive conditions. If the post-contemporary is the erasure of the present, Pre-Future examines how to make the most of a hybridized temporality. Works by Morehshin Allahyari, Zach Blas, Cybertwee, Fannie Sosa, and Tabita Rezaire examine current modes of artistic production, expose the biases of networked systems, create shared resources, and propose thoughtful alternatives for our shared futures.

Where is the Eternal Expanse?

Aaron Bjork, Emilie Gervais, Faith Holland, Elisabeth Molin, Nicolas Sassoon, Miyö van Stenis, and Katie Torn

Curated by Benoit Palop & Valerie Amend

Where is the eternal expanse?  Can it be found in a Tesla car orbiting Mars, an Oculus headset in your parent's basement, or a freeport in Hong Kong? This exhibition approaches the multiverse through the presentation of two virtual worlds in an effort to explore how escapism and fantasy can be used as critical tools.
