The first exhibition to feature arts related to space travel, futurism, and science fiction from across the American hemisphere. PAST FUTURES will feature visionary artwork created amid the Space Race and in relation to Cold War-era scientific and technological initiatives. Locating coordinates of artistic production from North, Central, and South America, PAST FUTURES shows how artists imaginatively visualized themes of conquest and discovery and the crossing over into new territories, whether earthbound or celestial.
