Near in the Distance is RedLine’s 2020 Resident Artist Exhibition featuring works that explore important issues of our time, including surveillance, cultural erasure, environmental degradations, gender equality, and productivity. The exhibition considers the social and cultural forces that shape our lives now and influence fears and hopes for the near future.
Near in the Distance is the first exhibition in RedLine’s 2020 series entitled “Futurism; Afro & Beyond,” a lineup of exhibitions and programs inspired by the cultural genre known as Afrofuturism. With rich and expansive source material that ranges from ancient mythology, science fiction, astrophysics, and technology to social justice movements, indigenous ethics, and popular culture, the possibilities for exploring this genre are boundless.
