Brave New Worlds

Brave New Worlds gathers together two dozen artists from 17 countries whose art-making is responsible to the “world” as subject matter, philosophical topic, and object of personal concerns and affections.

The exhibition curated by Doryun Chong and Yasmil Raymond borrows its title from Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, a 1932 novel about a future dystopia in which humankind is ruled as a unified politic body. The multitudinous “brave new worlds” may be thought of as an antidote to that terrifying vision of singularity, an attempt to frame the art of today beyond glib expressions of globalism and to stress its multiplicity of voices, perspectives, and visions.
