Lita Albuquerque, “20/20: Accelerando”

January 26 – April 10, 2016

Tracing the relationship between humanity and the cosmos, 20/20: Accelerando follows the journey of a 25th century female astronaut in the year 6,000 BCE on a mission to spread interstellar consciousness. Crash-landing onto Earth, she forgets her mission, prompting her to embark on a journey of remembrance and self-discovery:

“Where was I? And why was I awakening at this moment, on this planet?”

Albuquerque’s imagery carries the viewer out of the everyday and into a space of wonderment, triggering memory and mystery.

For 20/20: Accelerando, Albuquerque worked closely with artist and composer Robbie C. Williamson. Together, they have adapted GenIus Remembered, a text Albuquerque began in 2003, into 20/20: Accelerando, a hypnotic film installation that melds myth, nature and sound. Click here to read the press release.

20/20: Accelerando is curated by Grant Johnson, USC Dornsife Doctoral Fellow.
