Like the Futurists of the early 20th century, we live in a world immersed in technology, urban trappings, speed, information, connectivity and change. Viewing it through a southern lens, tinted by tradition, can result in modern dissonance. For many, the narrative of the American South, will be informed and confined by its history, but how is its future to be portrayed? This exhibition seeks to showcase contemporary artists’ depictions of the schism and reconciliation of what might be called the New Southern Futurism.  

Southern Futurism will run January 30 - April 7, 2017, with a reception held on March 25, 2017.
