\n\n

The Parlour Gallery\, Mapalim\, 181-187 Queen's Crescent\, NW5 4DS

\n\n

A group exhibition of contemporary art on th e theme of Utopia draws on imagination\, mythology\, memory and desire\, to explore both personal and global aspirations towards a better world. A ser ies of events accompanies the show\, including a workshop for children on ‘ Fairies and Superheroes in Utopia’ (Sunday 17th July\, 11.30-4.30)\, an eve ning of Utopian Visions in Science Fiction (Wednesday 20th July 6-9pm)\, an d an interactive gallery talk with the artists and curators (Saturday 16th July\, 12-10pm).

\n\n

The central focus of Utopian Art Fest is the group exhibitio n ‘In Dreams Begin Responsibilities’\, which takes its tit le from the short story by Delmore Schwartz that explores the subconscious desire to affect the future by changing the past.

\n\n

Featuring contemporary art\ , the show draws on imagination\, mythology\, memory and desire\, to explor e both personal and global aspirations towards a better world.

\n\n

The exhibition aims to capture the spirit of aspiration\, hope and creative thinking abou t contemporary living conditions\, as well as contrasting this with visions of Dystopia and explorations of positive/negative dichotomies. Utopia migh t be an imagined\, mythical place or perhaps even a vision of paradise\, bu t it might also be a variation on reality that is mediated by memory\, desi re or dreams.
