The Futures group exhibition is on at Vilnius’ CAC (Contemporary Art Centre), opening April 14 and running to May 28.
Curated by Gerda Paliušytė, the show includes work by Cory Arcangel, Pierre Bismuth, Carlos Noronha Feio, Ulijona Odišarija and Shimabuku among others, as well as a performance on the opening night by JL Dianthus.
The exhibition takes its inspiration from Joshua Rothman’s article ‘The Nostalgic Science Fiction of The X-Files‘ (2016) in the New Yorker that relates “the rebirth in popularity of retro-futurism with the confused political policies of the current age, and our anticipation of global catastrophes.” Commenting on these ideas of cinematic nostalgia, the work brought together asks questions about our fears and desires for the future, and the processes that construct our ideas past and present.
