Centre Pompidou-Metz, France

Showing Lavar Munroe, 5 November 2022 - 10 April 2023
'A Gateway to Possible Worlds', a group exhibition curated by Alexandra Müller, including work by Lavar Munroe.
The American writer Ray Bradbury said: "Science fiction is the art of the possible." Under the guise of anticipating the future, it speaks to us of the present. It is a laboratory of hypotheses that manipulate and extrapolate the repressive norms and dogmas of today's world, its ambitions, social afflictions, opportunities and perils. The ehibition brings together over 200 works from the late 1960s to the present day. It puts the spotlight on the bonds between imaginary worlds and our reality with the help of artists, authors, architects and film directors. It builds on current demands for 21st century utopias to spark debate, inspiration and a form of hope.
