OPENING RECEPTION:  Saturday October 27 4-6pm

GALLERY TALK:  Monday, October 29  10am

This is a group exhibition featuring artists whose work depicts visions of future dystopias based on a turbulent present.  Desert wastelands, faux fallen satellites, devises designed to ensure your survival and a world seemingly run by giant computer servers; the artists in this show offer a prescient window into a world that not only may be, but in some places, already exists. 

Artists include Lisa Adams, Libby Clarke, Daniel Dove, Trygve Faste, Sean Higgins, Kelly McLane,  Thomas Muller and Klutch Stanaway.

Additional events including lectures and artists visits in conjunction for this exhibition can be found at www.csun.edu/artgalleries.
