The world in which we live is transforming more quickly than ever thought possible. The shock of the pandemic precipitated an almost overnight, unprecedented upending in the systems and ways in which we live, love and work, and also in the way art is presented and engaged with. With travel largely curtailed for most people, there appears to have been a newfound appreciation of nature and its bounty and glory, as well as urban farming among a significant number of disparate groups within our shores, for example. What might this augur for a society and world that is planning on a green recovery and renewed focus on sustainable development? How might our desires be altered during these changeful times? Artists are invited to explore the exigencies and possibilities of all that lies ahead – to consider and reimagine what the future might hold, and what life might look like in the aftermath of this extensive remaking.
The work of illustration artists has historically been some of the most responsive to the times and societies in which they live. This exhibition features forward-looking works reflecting current concerns and themes responding to this period of sweeping change and uncertainty, which dare to imagine the manifold potentialities and possibilities presented by recent developments and trajectories of the world and human development.
