"Science" Fiction

October 7 - November 20, 2009

Venue
Creativity Explored

Location
San Francisco, CA

Robotrix by Douglas Sheran © 2008 Creativity Explored.

This exhibition features a fantastical array of renderings by Creativity Explored studio artists depicting characters, landscapes, and vehicles from the world of science fiction film, TV, and pulp fiction, as well as original conceptions of future places and beings. In this lively show, images of iconic characters such as the Robotrix, from Metropolis, Robbie the Robot, C3PO, Darth Vader, General Ursus, and Mr. Spock and the crew of the Enterprise will populate the gallery at Creativity Explored, while renderings of scenes from classic films and TV shows further advance the science fiction theme.

"Science" Fiction is one of a series of exhibitions curated by artist and instructor Francis Kohler, which contain text elements that encourage gallery visitors to consider the experiences and issues attendant to living with developmental disabilities. In the case of "Science" Fiction Kohler says, "the quotation marks around the word science in the title of the show refer to the various excerpts of text interspersed throughout the exhibition. These excerpts offer small bits of historical 'science' regarding people with disabilities that most people living in 2009 would find laughable if not offensive."

Costumes are encouraged!
