GIANT presents FOREVER: CHANGED, an exhibition that looks at the future we now occupy through the bold, sharp and sometimes humorous lens of major contemporary artists working across a variety of disciplines. FOREVER: CHANGED runs at GIANT Gallery 16 July 16 October 2022.

The exhibition questions a future that we currently inhabit, and it contrasts this with the utopian projections made by early post-war artists. Rather than celebrating or critiquing the current moment, today's artists find themselves within mass culture itself. In a moment of ultra-hybridity, we see artists re-purposing existing materials, images, words, and technologies. Authorship is eroded and challenged, artists themselves are the celebrity, and through new technologies, everyone is an artist. This future is a collage of ideas, failings and contrasting perspectives, which we observe here in the works of: Fabio Lattanzi Antinori; Ron Arad; Sarah Hardacre; Mark Jenkins; Hayden Kays; Misha Milovanovich; Kenny Schachter; Mark Titchner; Gavin Turk; and Tim Noble & Sue Webster.

FOREVER: CHANGED comments directly on how mass media, culture and production had previously been held at a critical distance, as something that could be challenged by generations of artists gone before and how that distance has now evaporated to the extent that we are consumed within it and active in propagating it, consuming it and remixing it. Across the exhibition, the sanctity of the art object is contested. A strong argument that art itself has become a pop-cultural product is presented by several different voices. Telling society where it’s lost, what’s broken and what’s wrong with it.
