There has been much speculation about what the future holds for Techno-Impressionist art. This movement caused a revolution in the world of late-20th-Century art, but art historians (and art futurists) were in deep disagreement about what the future would bring.
For this exhibit, our guest curator, Charles Artless MFA (Master of Future Art), faced an incredible challenge. From his headquarters at the Department of Art Parapsychology at Duke University, he devised a daring plan. In his groundbreaking paper, "The evolutionary nature of art," he postulated that the work produced by any art movement evolves and by using a space/time continuum, the future could be seen. But it wouldn't work with ordinary scientific methods.
To quote from the guest curator:
"The answer came to me in a dream. All of a sudden, we were awash in psychics -- on TV, in your email, on Usenet newsgroups. A plethora of psychics accompanied by a dearth of disbelief created the ideal climate for pushing the envelope, artwise."
After recruiting a team of out-of-work psychics, he took them on tours through all the Techno-Impressionist museums and and a number of private collections. Soon, the Techno-Impressionist works of the future began to appear.
Take a look and see what the future holds.
But remember, you'll be looking at art that does not yet exist.
