Global warming is the major phenomenon of our time. With all our social, political and aesthetic bearings turned inside out, art is like a compass. Artists free themselves from constraints, imagine forms, engage in actions that help to guide us and to take measure of the times to come. In 2017, the École supérieure d’Art Annecy Alpes and the Centre de la Photographie Genève established the ‘Effondrement des Alpes’ (Collapse of the Alps) research platform, bringing together artists, designers, architects, theorists, scientists and others. All of them are concerned by the impact of global warming endured in real time.
In partnership with Effondrement des Alpes, BOZAR is opening a ‘Gallery of Futures’. From October to April, artists, architects, poets and performers present new projects in this Gallery in the form of so-called "patches", temporary "mini-exhibitions" that change every month. Each of them has selected a date between the present and 2100 and will present their vision of the future. In this evolving exhibition where artistic projects intertwine and unfold in succession, you will enter a gallery, or a tunnel, or a mine – a time-space taken over by different artists. You will then find yourself in 2031, 2099, 2068 or 2088, and experience the art from a potential future time.
