BAC: British Art Center copy bound accompanied by booklet, [20] pages, describing the exhibition.
"Ten experimental propositions from leading artists, architects and other cultural practicioners respond to urgent issues we face in the twenty-first century. Using strategies as diverse as digital modeling, hand drawing, poetry and screenshots, they imagine scenarios in which queer desire, house music and fracking meet on a mountainside; grief and microbes generate new possibilities for housing; or machines dispense objects and emotions to support our place in the technological world of tomorrow. Is This Tomorrow? takes as its model Whitechapel Gallery's landmark exhibition and publication This is Tomorrow (1956), which featured contributions from architects, painters and sculptors working collaboratively in small groups ... Newly commissioned essays from curators and writers Iwona Blazwick, Pedro Gadanho and Lydia Yee situate the project within a cultural, historical and political context."--Inside of back cover.
