The outlook for the future can seem bleak, the doomsday clock is currently set at 90 seconds to midnight and there does not seem to be a solution on the table. With this depressing forecast how do we find hope? In Get Me Out!, artists share ways of escape from our current reality – be that through protest, imagining a new future or completely checking out.
Across diverse practices proposals for new worlds, futurist inspired thinking and science fiction inspired realities will be presented. What possibilities are on the table if we can escape from the current state? Who would benefit and who gets left behind? Here you will find both utopic and dystopic futures, some filled with hope and others with humour.
Get me out! features new and existing works by 110% Collective, Erin Coates, Michael Cook, Merinda Davies, Michaela Gleave and Vicki Hallett, Spencer Harvie, The Huxleys, Robert Nugent, Helena Papageorgiou, Ryan Presley and Katie Rasch.
