A beautifully illustrated exhibition catalog from Vancouver’s Belkin Gallery, bringing together eight exciting young artists: Tim Lee, Alex Morrison, Isabelle Pauwels, Kevin Schmidt, Mark Soo, Corin Sworn, Althea Thauberger and Elizabeth Zvonar. The exhibit looks at the dizzying rush to contradictory futures rehearsed daily in the mass media that flood our imaginations. Yet images also tug us into the past, towards a primitive condition of order, familial loyalty, ecstatic belief, and thrall to totalitarian sublimes. Curators Juan Gaitán and Scott Watson use the notion of imagined futures as a narrative and thematic device, a device to open up the larger question of the relationship between works of art and historical consciousness in a time of general amnesia.
