Utopian Imagination: Zak Ové at The Ford Foundation Gallery, New York

17 September - 7 December 2019 Museums

Utopian Imagination brings together works by artists who are imagining our existence on an imperiled planet. With the understanding that (radical) love is the answer to the violence presented in Perilous Bodies, this exhibition recognizes the difficulties of the task ahead. Utopias are increasingly hard to imagine in a world torn asunder by conflict. Using science fiction to frame this interrogation, this exhibition presents objects, bodies, vessels, and fragments created by artists over time that when pieced together, offer a vision of a future that includes all of us.

The Utopian Imagination exhibition trilogy concept was developed by Jaishri Abichandani.
