Futures Trading at Nanaimo Art Gallery
Mia and I debuted a new work at the Nanaimo Art Gallery as part of theirWhat's Ours is Yours: on community and collecting exhibition in March.
“Standing at the alter,” “unafraid of death,” and “coffee with Trevor” are all possible futures that artists Eric Moschopedis & Mia Rushton have collected as part of their project, Futures Trading. Borrowing from the investment practice of the same name, Futures Trading encourages gallery-goers to speculate on what their future might be and then modify the collection by trading their future for one they might rather have. Over the course of the exhibition the assembled real or imagined futures were slowly replaced, forming a wholly new collection.
