The Future is Certain; It’s the Past Which is Unpredictable

  • 23 June — 20 August 2017 *on now

"The future is certain", according to an old Soviet joke. "It's the past which is unpredictable." This exhibition reflects on the ways history is written and the inevitability with which the past reasserts itself in the future. Bringing together works from nine artists and collectives, The Future is Certain is an economy of ideas and artworks as well as historical facts and records that refuse to disappear on their own.

The past is a force that needs work – cultural, social, political, psychological – otherwise it tends to reaffirm itself in the future. History itself is the central subject of the show: It is a research material, a source of imagery, a producer of revolutions, wars, inventions, and prophecies, and an object for thought.

Participating artists and collectives: Felix Kalmenson, Jonas Mekas (in video conversation with Johnston Sheard and Justė Kostikovaitė), Deimantas Narkevičius, Emily Newman, Rather Than Happiness, Jura Shust, Slavs and Tatars, Emilija Škarnulytė, Juan Pablo Villegas.

Curated by Monika Lipšic.
