    2019 Futures of Love – Magasins Généraux, Paris, FR. Curated by Anna Labouze & Keimis Henni.

    Futures of Love brings together some forty international artists, recognized or emerging, whose work offers a prospective vision of love and sexuality.

    Between dystopia, fantasy and hope, the exhibition is spread over eight chapters, each one exploring a potential future of love. The artists approach everything from first dates arranged by way of algorithms, to the dematerialisation, commodification, robotisation and fluidity of our amorous and carnal relations. The artworks also explore the impact of science on new sexual reproduction methods and synthesising love. The exhibition questions these practices of a new kind, which lead to a redefinition of the very nature of love, desire and enjoyment in the years to come. The viewer finally frees himself from human considerations, to open up to the forms that love incarnates in nature and to the infinite power of this poetic, creative, metaphysical and universal energy.
