The idea of ​​the mass revolt has always been linked to the dream of humanity for the reorganization of the world, for development and progress, for the improvement of the quality of life for all. But the revolutionary faith and the struggle for the ultimate triumph of freedom and justice often turn into catastrophes, in wars, in dramatic situations. Artistic sensibility can draw optimism and hopeful messages for the future or, conversely, it may record the clash, the massacre, the tragedy. Each artist, therefore, through his personal look, his beliefs and experiences of life, using the means and expressive languages ​​that best represent him, gives us his picture of the revolution, deepening the various aspects and unforeseen implications that may arise from this specific concept. The Future to Future project was born from an idea of the 20th and 21st Century Art Museum in St. Petersburg (www.mispxx-xxi.ru/eng/) realized in collaboration with the National Center for Contemporary Art (Moscow) , the Garuzzo for Visual Arts - IGAV (Italy), the State Museum of Contemporary Art (Thessaloniki), the New Museum of Aslan Chekhoev (St. Petersburg) and the Galleries Anna Nova ArtGallery, Marina Gisich (St. Petersburg) Pechersky Gallery Gallery (Moscow). The exhibition opened on October 25, 2017 in the newly renovated MISP Museum, via Griboedova 103 and is accompanied by a catalog of all the artists participating in the project.
