Past Futures, Present, Futures presents 101 unrealized proposals for New York City, dating from its formation to today with 101 reenactments by invited artists, architects, writers and policy-makers to create alternative visions for the present and future of the city. With the belief that art and architecture, beyond the production of new forms of capital or building solutions, have the power to re-imagine new forms of collective aspiration, the exhibition will present a past and future historiography of novel ideas in New York to open discussion about relevant actions in the city, their vectors of desire, methodologies, limits, audiences and agents.
The exhibition opens with all 101 Past Futures on display. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, all Present, Future reenactments are daily added till the closing of the show. On October 26 at 7pm, a second opening of the show will unveil all the commissioned reenactments.
