Curated by Jon Sueda and featuring 37 projects by Bay Area and international artists, All Possible Futures is the first of three SOMArts Commons Curatorial Residency exhibitions in 2014. The group exhibition explores the potential of graphic design and celebrates a questioning of boundaries regarding concepts, processes, technologies, and form. Contemporary speculative pieces take the form of both physical objects and restaged installations.

All Possible Futures concludes on Wednesday, February 12, 6:30–8:30pm with a reception and catalog launch event, including a conversation with Sueda, the exhibition’s curator, and writers Rachel Berger and Emily McVarish. The catalog, published by Bedford Press (Architectural Association, London), is 7.5 x 5 inches, 132 pages, 1 color with color installation images, and features texts by Rachel Berger, Max Bruinsma, Emmet Byrne, Catherine de Smet, Jon Sueda and Emily McVarish.

In the spirit of the show’s title, the exhibition itself shifts and evolves over the course of the visitor’s experience. Some works are traces of pieces. Others adapt. Still others must be manipulated or engaged in order to become fully apparent. Join the curator and exhibiting artists for the final opportunity to see how the speculative design work on display has evolved since the exhibition opened.
