‘Future Knowledge’ at Modern Art Oxford

‘Future Knowledge’ at Modern Art Oxford

This new Oxford exhibition invites us to reflect on contemporary life and imagine our futures.

20 May 2017 –  25 June 2017 |

Modern Art Oxford presents Future Knowledge, a participatory project that transforms the gallery into a public studio – a space to generate ideas and imagine possibilities. Artists and thinkers from different disciplines present artworks, projects and events that reflect on contemporary life and the systems of actions and relationships that collectively shape our futures.

Taking the gallery’s home – the city of Oxford – as a starting point, the five-week exhibition situates artistic practice as a form of visual research. Oxford is a city of learning renowned for its universities, but many people have a different experience of living in the city. Some of these diverse viewpoints are explored through conversations, images, installations and events, which reflect on the city today and imagine its future. 

In addition to exhibited works, the gallery hosts an artist-designed social space where visitors can attend events, discuss ideas, draw or write, alongside an archival display with images and materials of radical environmental architecture in Oxford. Spanning environmental change, architecture and housing, and the diverse range of individual experiences within the city, Future Knowledge poses questions about, and invites reflection upon, city life, as individuals and as part of a community. 

Future Knowledge runs from 20 May - 25 June at Modern Art Oxford. See the gallery website for more information.
