Future Tense

“Future Tense,” is an art exhibition that is curated and organized by The University of New Mexico Art Museum. The exhibition runs from June 18 through Sept. 17 at 516 ARTS located at 516 Central Ave. SW. It will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 12 to 5 p.m.

The exhibition highlights select Center photographers from across the United States and around the world. “Future Tense” is an exploration of the socially, politically and psychologically complex relationship with the places we inhabit.

Moving within and beyond the physicality of here and now, the photographers in this exhibition trace the tensions between nature and artifice; isolation and interconnectedness; past and present; and the physical and psychological…all of which reveal the tenuous balance that defines the path of our collective future. This exhibition is presented by UNM Art Museum and Center at 516 ARTS, a joint effort by the lead partnering organizations of PhotoSummer 2016.

Featured artists include: Delaney Allen, Antoine Bruy, Pelle Cass, Phillip Cheung, Christine Collins, Tamas Dezso, David Favrod, Lori Hepner, Wawrzyniec Kolbusz, Dina Litovsky, Judy Natal, Eric Pickersgill, David Schalliol and Daniel Traub.

Curator of Education and Public Programs, Traci Quinn, and MFA Candidate, Stefan Batista curated the exhibition.

PhotoSummer, now in its second year, is a collaborative initiative that represents and actively promotes historical and contemporary photography. Taking the rich legacy of photography in New Mexico as a point of departure, the exhibitions and public programs around PhotoSummer represent the continued energy and support of the photographic arts in the region.

PhotoSummer features photo-based programming through exhibitions, talks, workshops and more to highlight the very best of photographic practice and scholarship.
