February 8 - February 28
Hunter College MFA Building, 205 Hudson St

Taking an explicitly political and socially-engaged focus on this intersection, Refiguring the Future is the first dedicated exhibition of its kind. As the global present becomes increasingly politicized and polemicized it is more important than ever to challenge our ideas of what’s next: to push and probe,…

These decision-making entities operate on certain assumptions, biases and preconceptions about the world - many of which are inherited from those who programmed them. Despite this companies and institutions are introducing algorithmic thinking into the heart of their infrastructure at a rapid rate. They…

Virtual Futures: Boundless Bodies (London, England)

April 9

Virtual Futures presents Near-Future Fictions on the theme of 'Boundless Bodies.' Bodies are often a product of the environment in which they are situated.

There is no guarantee that the Earth will be able to maintain its current ecosystems, or that the living beings of this world will remain on this planet. We are asking authors…
