In The Presence of Multiple Possibilities combines existing and newly commissioned works, which draw attention and explore different approaches to the possibility of a future event that cannot be predicted with certainty. Through philosophical and practical understandings of the term contingency, the exhibition attempts to manifest the discrepancy between predicted and actual outcomes.
The works in the exhibition attempt to make explicit the inherently contingent nature of translation, interpretation, appropriation and instruction, either through creating a structure for continued development, or by deliberately existing as incomplete.
In the Presence of Multiple Possibilities is curated by MA Curating Contemporary Art students at the Royal College of Art: Hannah Conroy, Cicely Farrer, Ellen Greig, Juste Kostikovaite, Galit Mana, Nicholas Warner and Sophie Williamson, and is generously supported by Wysing Art Centres’ Escalator Programme and Arts Council England, in collaboration with
