2116 at Broad Art Museum, Michigan
A Forecast of The Next Century

  • Wednesday 24 August 2016

Following a successful exhibition at the Glucksman Gallery, Cork. '2116' will be moving to The Eli and Edythe, Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University, USA. Where it will be on display from November 2016 to May 2017. 

2116 a group show, is a forecast of the next century. It explores our predictions and projections of an increasingly globalised and technology-driven world, and asks how Ireland will look from both within the country and from outside. From our contemporary vantage point, halfway between the origins of Irish independence in 1916 and an unknown, imagined future, how do visual artists see the next 100 years?

The exhibition 2116: Forecast of the next century features 16 Irish artists whose works present a vision of our changing society, the technological advances, progress and decline that will shape the coming century. Taking place one hundred years after the Easter Rising, 2116 is a platform for what is rising now and a way for Ireland in all its definitions to begin to imagine what lies ahead.
