However regardless of the exhibition’s career-spanning providing, “Pricey Future”—as its identify suggests—will not be a retrospective. “It facilities on the long run, an idea central to my inventive apply,” notes Pesce. “It’s solely becoming that the exhibition takes place in a metropolis that has change into a inventive capital of the world—a future-forward metropolis the place the humanities act as a catalyst for essential conversations taking place globally.”
