About us

FUTURE HISTORY is a two-phase project. Version 1.0 takes a look in the rear-view mirror as we accelerate through this post-digital phase of our cultural evolution. It celebrates the last 25 years of radical innovation in arts practice, education and research, and locates Plymouth at the centre of it all. Version 2.0 projects forward, sending out cultural mycelia and predictive algorithms to envision the future of creative endeavour.

Rooted in the cybernetic, telematic and interactive behaviours defined by Professor Roy Ascott, FUTURE HISTORY maps this influence on the emergence of contemporary art forms: the digital, wearable, immersive, biological, and artificial.

FUTURE HISTORY sits at the nexus of a planetary network and maps chains of influence that have catalysed the development of new artistic directions and shaped a generation of transdisciplinary practitioners. It presents a series of exhibitions, symposia, online experiences, living labs and creative commissions which recover and redefine a future history.

FUTURE HISTORY is produced by Mike Phillips, Professor of Interdisciplinary Arts and Director of Research at i-DAT, University of Plymouth.

FUTURE HISTORY (Version 1.0) will be updated in April 2020 with FUTURE HISTORY (Version 2.0), at The Levinsky Gallery.

Time: Monday to Friday: 10am to 5pm and Saturday 11am to 4pm (Closed Thursday 19 December to Sunday 5 January 2020 inclusive)
