MOCA at Goldman Warehouse

The Possibility of an Island . From Dec 4th, 2008 through Mar 21st, 2009.
MOCA at Goldman Warehouse. Miami MuseumsThe Museum of Contemporary Art’s annex space, MOCA at Goldman Warehouse, will feature the exhibition The Possibility of an Island from December 4th, 2008 through March 21st, 2009. The exhibition, which takes French author Michel Houellebecq’s 2005 novel of the same name as its starting point, poses existential questions in the face of an elusive future. Both the exhibition and novel address fundamental anxieties about issues such as aging, death, irrelevancy, culture, destruction and sexuality in the present and the future.

Featuring a group of international artists working in a variety of media, the exhibition explores the poetic and philosophical sides of science fiction literature. These artists approach science fiction as a genre that provides diversion from the banality of everyday life, making our current dreams and anxieties more spectacular. The Possibility of an Island examines fantasies for the future, which reveal desires to escape pressing social and political concerns. Covering themes from habitation and technology to fear and hope, the exhibition illustrates the present time through extraordinary treatments of the past, present, and future.    

Artists featured in the exhibition include Cory Arcangel, Davide Balula, Tobias Bernstrup, Heman Chong, Peter Coffin, Matias Faldbakken, Cao Fei, Kim Fisher; Claire Fontaine; K48; Chris Kraus; Cristina Lei Rodriguez; Nicolas Lobo, Martin Oppel, Philip (a novel written by Mark Aerial Waller, Heman Chong, Cosmin Costinas, Rosemary Heather, Leif Magne Tangen, Francis McKee, David Reinfurt, and Steve Rushton); Lisi Raskin, Julika Rudelius, and Mungo Thomson.
