Future Tense is an open ended conversational, visual environment, composed of still and moving imagery. Viewed through a multifaceted lens of different life experiences, the exhibition features artists from diverse cultures & backgrounds. Future Tense engages audiences in a space of frequencies that collectively communicate different channels of contemplation, considering new understandings of time, but also how image surface can be interpreted as communal space to be questioned and dissected.  This group exhibition runs until 30 June.
