‘The Force of Fantasy’

Presented by Socially Engaged Art Salon (SEAS)
Curated by Ricardo Reverón Blanco

[…] fantasy is not equated with what is not real, but rather with what is not yet real.”

Gil Mualem-Doron – The Couple

Taking Judith Butler’s essay ‘The Force of Fantasy: Feminism, Mapplethorpe, and Discursive Excess’ as a starting point, this exhibition proposes that fantasy is a powerful tool to not only imagine alternative futures but to manifest them by looking beyond convention. The Force of Fantasy will enter the extraordinary as a means to open up dialogues about gender, sexuality, race, class, and critique our pervasive social hierarchy. Are you prepared to look beyond convention with us?
