Future Fossils: Available summer 2025 through winter 2026

The Exhibition Living now in the Anthropocene, the 22 international artists whose works comprise this exhibition make resonant objects that appear as if glimpsed in a rearview mirror, from some time in an unknown future. They create a physical presence of what will be a disappeared past, conduits for assessment, and critique of current culture in the form of fossils. Like Paleolithic relics, they are largely cast—in glass, metal, plaster, and resins. The multimedia three-dimensional works in the exhibition can be organized into two loose divisions: corporal effigies that explore our bodily presence, and cultural fossils which reflects our technological present.

Artists under consideration include Ai Weiwei (China/Portugal)
Daniel Arsham (United States)
Izaak Brandt (United Kingdom)
LaKela Brown (United States)
Jedediah Caesar (United States, United Kingdom, Germany)
