Futura Proxima, by Curated For & Gucci
Tue - Sat; 10am - 1pm, 3 - 7pm
20 rue Royale, 75008 Paris, France
In December 2021, Darmo partnered with A Magazine Curated By and Gucci for FUTURA PROXIMA. The exhibition celebrates Gucci centennial anniversary. The exhibition was a cross-cultural exploration of the passage of time for the year 2022 and beyond. FUTURA PROXIMA is brought to life in the format of a calendar, over 12 months with 12 artists divining the future through their thinking and their craft. Among the artists presented featured: aurèce vettier, Simon Denny, Ben Elliot, Manger Manger.
“FUTURA PROXIMA is a glimpse at tomorrow — a map of maybes, and a fractal question mark of intriguing possibilities. The extremes of utopias and dystopias dissolve in its pages, replaced by 12 polyvalent excursions into the near distant future. Exploring the speculative interactions of our human form parsed with aesthetics and architecture, literature, biology and philosophy, it presents a non-linear loop of creative constructs for our physical and digital realities alike.”
