This 34 page Exhibition Companion Book features the works of the artists + designers selected for the FUTURE FORWARD group exhibition held at BECA ICAD in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA from May 1-29, 2010.
The featured artists and designers each responded to a global open-call put forth by The BECA Foundation requesting works for review which explored ideas, messages, contributions, warnings or solutions that if carried forward may profoundly impact the future– be it positively or negatively.
Featured Artists + Designers:
Jonas Angelet, Nikkita Bhakta, Richard Elaver/Dennis Dollens/Phil Renato, Chris Esposito, Sayaka Ganz, Marc Holt, Yeji Jun, and Molly Rogers.
(Please note that only the first 15 pages and the front + back covers are shown in the preview.)
The BECA Foundation is an artist + designer run (and thus far, volunteer run) not-for-profit global arts organization benefiting artists, designers and the public now headquartered in Albuquerque, NM, USA. BECA is an acronym for Bridge for Emerging Contemporary Art. The organization's core belief is that "NEW ART + NEW DESIGN FUELS THE BEST OF WHAT'S YET TO COME ON THIS PLANET". Our organization serves as a bridge, facilitator, supporter, enabler and vessel for local, national and international contemporary art + design communities toward the growth and advancement of new ideas and innovation via contemporary art + design. The core program focus is on developing public art exhibition and related opportunities for emerging and under-recognized artists + designers. Those opportunities are also extended to established artists + designers who are forging new pathways by exploring new mediums, ideas and processes not previously associated with their work.
