Space 1026 presents Philadelphia 2076. This open call asked artists to take a look at our city’s future. Asking for loose interpretations of what Philadelphia will look like in the year 2076. For example; post-apocalyptic nightmares, environmental meltdowns, dreamlike futurescapes, new versions of the same old. The response to the call was varied in media and subject matter. Optimistic, depressing, funny, graphic, painterly, and abstract describe the variety of work chosen for this exhibition.The jurors Conrad Benner, Ryan Beck, and Miriam Singer selected photographs, drawings, paintings, and prints for this exhibition.
Artwork is available to view and purchase on our online store.

Artwork on our postcard is by Terri Fry Kasuba
