New Show Opens June 19


The hugely talented Maxwell Paternoster has agreed to create a show just for us and it's going to be something really quite good. The title? The 1974 Yearbook of Science and the Future: Chapter 6 - Waste [draft].

The title might be a bit of a mouthful, but it's worth the effort I'm sure you'll agree. The show takes its inspiration from a book of a very similar name and more importantly from our relationship with technology down the years.

Maxwell looks back at what we were thinking when we were looking forward, our apsirations and our fears, and asks two simple questions: how close did we come to our ideal and who picked up the bill? He'll be looking at the byproducts of our efforts, the waste and the wires, and taking things from there.

If you're familiar with Maxwell's work you'll know what to expect. If not, expect to lose hours of your life in the complex and hugely detailed illustrations.

The show is open to the public from June 19.
