As the world is transformed by pandemics and revolutions, as physical spaces, access, and connection is lost, we reimagine the gallery spaces of the future. What could it look like? How can the art, the space, and the conversations and interactions critically engage with the world and with our communities? How does it spark and sustain inspiration - with ideas, materials, and media? How does it reveal what is possible, and what needs to change?
We imagine an evolving space, changing in response to community needs and technology/media innovations. A space created by artists, technologists, and communities together - a space to collaboratively experiment, learn, play, engage, and create.
CETI will convene groups of artists, technologists, theorists, and community members to create prototypes of future galleries; and launch exhibitions and dialogues to reimagine what co-created inclusive, accessible, virtual gallery spaces might/should reveal about our world and what it might become.
The exhibitions/conversations/creations that activate these spaces will focus on reimagining - destroying, repurposing, and rebuilding systems, objects, places, and structures, to envision a future that is equitable, community-focussed, and inspiring.
Gallery Prototype I: Summer/Fall 2020
Our first gallery iteration is an "abandoned mall", created through an experimental collaborative virtual creative jam. From August 6, 2020 to September 1, 2020, we held a series of sprints and design-build sessions to brainstorm, experiment, prototype and create the first Gallery of the Future.
The Gallery will open to the public and for exhibitions on October 23nd, 2020. Check back here for details and an invitation to our Launch Reception and the Opening for our first Exhibition.

Project Leads: Marin Vesely, Scott Nieradka, Hilary Tsai, Stephen Lee, Brenda Trammell, Joseph Wells, Jesse England, Dan Fernie-Harper, Nandini Ranganathan, and Alanna Risse.
