Liste Showtime will also feature the project, “Rewriting Our Imaginations”, inspired by an essay in The New Yorker magazine by science-fiction author, Kim Stanley Robinson. Collaborating with the artists each gallery selected to represent in the fair, the prompt called each artist to design a poster at a time when life was disrupted and imagination had become reality, posing a question of shifting imaginations and realities. “Rewriting Our Imagination” asks what new futures look like when the fictional is transformed into a reality. The posters can be viewed and purchased through the Liste Showtime site.
