The Whitechapel Gallery has invited ten groups of artists and architects to explore the potential of collaboration and offer their visions of the future in the technological world of tomorrow. The exhibition touches on and responds to the various issues we are facing today including natural resources, migration, technology and spirituality.
Is This Tomorrow? is a response to Whitechapel Gallery’s landmark 1956 exhibition This Is Tomorrow , which featured 37 British architects, painters and sculptors – including Richard Hamilton, Eduardo Paolozzi and Alison and Peter Smithson – who worked together in small groups.
