About the "Dear Future" auction/fundraiser:

"Dear Future" began, perhaps, as a love letter to precarity, a poison pen to the present. Collecting impressions of our communal POV in the form of 65 distinct art objects, laden with perspectives that bridge right now (the impossible NOW) to the not-quite-Yet beyond the horizon. Join us and maybe you'll see we've put together a time capsule; join us to witness its temporary state of completeness before it's scattered again into the vectors of the hundreds of eager hands that keep our small a art existence alive: supported, recognized, and blossoming.

From a somewhat more pragmatic perspective, "Dear Future" bookmarks the last 12 months for Public Space One. With a nod to our Near Future pop-up exhibition last January to the ever-present Now (again, is it really NOW?) we all inhabit as we lay to rest our reflections of 2017 and enter the dear oh Dear Future.
