SITE Santa Fe’s Future Shock is a large-scale exhibition of works by international artists that articulates the profound impact of the acceleration of technological, social, and structural change upon contemporary life. Future Shock takes its title from Alvin Toffler’s prophetic 1970’s book, in which he describes the exhilaration and consequences of our rapidly advancing world. 

Future Shock Participating Artists include: Doug Aitken (US) • Patrick Bernatchez (Canada) • Andreas Gursky (Germany) • Lynn Hershman Leeson (US) • Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (Mexico/Canada) in collaboration with Krzysztof Wodiczko (Poland/US) • Alexis Rockman (US) • Dario Robleto (US) • Tom Sachs (US) • Regina Silveira (Brazil) • Andrea Zittel (US)

In the space of this exhibition, SFI Distinguished Professor, Geoffrey West, will deliver a talk on his recently published book, Scale: The Universal Laws of Growth, Innovation, Sustainability, and the Pace of Life in Organisms, Cities, Economies, and Companies.  Signed books will be available for sale after the event.
