“A New Futurity” curated by Paulina Lara
At this moment in time, where isolation, death, and a looming reality hang in the consciousness of American society, these artists explore depictions of the future in defiance of the present. In three filmed segments, artists Jasmine Infiniti, Reyna Ripper, and The Stigma Fog Saint present an iteration of the present with performances and sounds that focus on the concept of the future as an exploration of time, in its ability to be frozen like a trance that also always exists within a wave of infinite possibility. Each work, with definitive expressions of different mediums, come together in a common thread that aims at answering the question, What will the future hold?
