Opening: Thursday, January 26, 7 pm
Hours: Thursday–Saturday, 3–7 pm & by appointment

For the first exhibition in 2012 dr julius | ap will present FutureShock OneTwo, a group show featuring a selection of international artists from three continents.

The exhibition will showcase two components: first, current trends in the advancement of non-objective art; and second the potential of the philosophy behind this art to impact society. Participants will each display a work of theirs that they feel looks ahead towards the future. An important goal of this exhibition is to have the artists join a general discussion on the future of non-objective art, such as its potential to influence one‘s perspective on life, especially in comparison with narrative forms of art. Moreover, it is to explore the relation of art and value: in times of a fundamental crisis in the monetary system, can money really be the adequate equivalent in which to trade art? Is the work of the artist actually not more than money can ever be?

The exhibition will run from January 26 through March 17, 2012 and show works by the following artists:

John Aslandis [AUS]
