"Future Shock" at SITE Santa Fe, Santa Fe, New Mexico.

On view October 7, 2017 through April 29, 2018.


On the occasion of SITE Santa FeGrand Re-Opening, SITE presents "Future Shock," an exhibition that examines our dynamic and decisive moment in global history and looks to the challenges and possibilities of the future. "Future Shock" is a large-scale exhibition of works by international artists that articulates the profound impact of the acceleration of technological, social, and structural change upon contemporary life. "Future Shock" takes its title from Alvin Toffler’s prophetic 1970s book, in which he describes the exhilaration and consequences of our rapidly advancing world. With Toffler’s predictions and warnings as a backdrop, "Future Shock" brings together the work of ten artists whose works imagine a range of visions of our present and future.

PARTICIPATING ARTISTS:
Doug Aitken, Andreas Gursky, Patrick Bernatchez, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer with Krzysztof Wodiczko, Alexis Rockman, Dario Robleto, Tom Sachs, Regina Silveira, Andrea Zittel
