Featuring works by artists Christelle Hug, Michael Cook, Kalanjay Dhir, Clinton Gorst and David Greenhalgh, Future looks at the artworks of the 1950’s and 60’s and their creative imagining of the future.
Drawing on the films and posters of this time, the artists have created their own updated versions of future cities, transport, domestic gadget and AI, providing both utopian and dystopian visions.
