Sequelism, Part 3: Possible, Probable and Preferable Futures is an ambitious, multi-faceted project that looks into the future and at that which is yet to happen. It will consider how the inexact arena of futurology is used as a means to better comprehend the present and the past.

Knowledge of current and historical events often plays a role in collective foresight or a prognosis of change that is yet to take place. In a similar fashion, futurology could be said to deal with 'memory in reverse'. The project will look to investigate how prospective visions might be utilised for vastly differing purposes, offering great idealism on the one hand, or harnessing political and societal anxiety on the other.

The exhibition is the first in a trilogy of Sequelism exhibitions. Co-curated by Nav Haq, Exhibitions Curator, Arnolfini and Latitudes (Max Andrews & Mariana Cánepa Luna)
