Observatory is pleased to announce our new exhibition, RETROFUTUROLOGY, a group show of visual art, curated by the Hollow Earth Society (Ethan Gould & Wythe Marschall, Founding Colonels).


About the show: To have an imagined future, you must simultaneously have an imagined present and an imagined past…


A DeLorean decked out in flashing lights and wires: A modest-budget promise that, yes, the technologies of our age can puncture the time barrier! Where to go? A rowdy 1950s? A steampunk 1890s?


Our visions of the future are nested. Our conception of time is hyperreal.


This is the process on which the present runs.


Come see contemporary art that investigates futures-past, futures-possible, and other nestings.


Featuring paintings, sculptures, and other works by many artists, including: Adrian Agredo, Tracey AtkinsonEmi Bradybunny MJon Burgerman,ChiezoDevon ClappJesse CorinellaRachel DebuqueDerrick DentMatt DuffinEthan GouldAndrea HendricksonRichard HerzogAndy HunterPatti JordanJohn LeeHaydex Li, Benjamin Mayock, Marianne McCarthyMegan MurthaGeorge PfauNick RaynoldsMatthew RobinsonSean Star WarsTom SarmoRachel SchragisJoelle ShallonGreg ShelnuttNiko SilvesterMelissa SternLisa Temple-Cox, andRobin Treadwell.
