Future Shock: A Requiem of the Past is a group show consisting of Centre’s artist members whose work explores notions of loss and erasure in the process of progress. This exhibition challenges the viewer to consider what is left behind when we move forward? The rise of urbanization erases communities and histories, American author and Futurist Alvin Toffler describes this process as, “[a] continual evolutionary process of evacuations, demolitions, removals, temporarily vacant lots, new installations and repeat. This process is identical in principle to the annual rotation of crops[…].”
Future Shock: A Requiem of the Past aims to excavate the past and honour what has been rendered obsolete. Centre is proud to exhibit our members in the Main Gallery showcasing the exceptional caliber of work our members create.
