On October 17th, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts opens their new exhibition, Dissident Futures which will explore how we think about possible futures through a variety of media, with a thematic focus on utopian, speculative, and pragmatic concepts.
A range of programs will be presented in conjunction with the exhibit, in collaboration with Long Now and other Bay Area organizations.
Dissident Futures presents art that investigates possible alternative futures, particularly those that question or overturn conventional notions of innovation, such as existing power, economic and technological structures.
