2112 Imagining the Future Exhibition via Future Tense Show

motodaAn interesting radio segment focussing on the 2112 Imagining the Future Exhibition.  The Exhibition asks the question:

Literature, film and television have been a strong force for imagining future scenarios. But why is it that there's been less focus on the future (science fiction) in contemporary art?

This question raises further questions from me about who you regard as artists.  Shaun Tan has been creating futuristic and fantasy works of art for years.  He’s even won an Oscar for short film. 

Or is this about artists not within the science fiction community dabbling in Imagining the future?

Care to find out?

The Exhibition Details can be found here for lucky Melbournians.
