Science Fiction: New Death

  • 27 March 2014 - 15 June 2014

‘It’s this kind of event that re-establishes what a genre can be, deconstructing its conventions and coming out with something new, something better.’ Starburst

 

‘Visitors can expect a surreal and often disturbing take on a new kind of reality’ Creative Tourist 

 

With the ongoing troubles in the Middle East and current problems in Ukraine, it’s particularly prescient.’ Liverpool Echo 

 

‘Science and technology is helping us live longer, but it could also be the death of us, and this collection looks at how the two fields shape our lives now, and how they might in the future.’ We Heart

 

‘One of the most intellectually enjoyable current fiction writers, China Miéville, lends a hand to this politically aware group show’ Culture Critic

 

‘Dizzingly futuristic, this installation confuses the viewer and challenges them to seek out their own path into this sparse, unforgiving universe.’ Corridor8

 

‘The year’s most thought-provoking exhibition’ SFX

 

‘amazingly ambitious’ The Double Negative
