Future Perfect group show at agnès b
Structured around the themes of retrofuturism, steampunk and ‘archeomodernism’, this group show aims to create a dialogue between past cultural output that imagined the future and work from contemporary artists that refers to the past by revisiting and reviving certain visions of the future or of modernity. A selection of work from contemporary artists will be grouped with older work and documents – each giving perspective to the others. In addition, there’ll be a section dedicated to cinema and another to the various accessories, devices and artefacts developed by the steampunk community. The exhibition will also include the first French retrospective of the defunct but cult American zine Retrofuturism via an installation designed by its originator, the artist and editor Lloyd Dunn. The show opens to the public on Saturday.
Sat 24 Mar-Sat 26 May. Tue-Sat, noon-7pm.
