The world of Alex Fischer’s Smarter Today is not ours. For one thing, Fischer doesn’t depict our time; his images are appropriated from current sources, but then intricately camouflaged, via a process of digital layering, into compositions of possible futures. Those futures are spacey and pastel, and sparsely peopled with hybrid figures that might approach the monstrous if they didn’t veer so resolutely away from categorization.
Featuring 131 works from Robert Canali, Liam Crockard, Alex Fischer, Rafael Goldchain, Kate McQuillen, John Monteith, Dominic Nahr, Ed Ou and Noel Rodo-Vankeulen.
