In the Fall of 2008\, during the formation of In Anticip ation\, the major social\, political and economic shifts occurring we re impossible to ignore. The world watched intently as the economic reces sion became global\, leaving many jobless and homeless\, the urgency of th e earth's environmental condition became irrefutable\, and here in the Uni ted States the tangible desire for political change resulted in the most h istoric presidential election in generations. Uncertainty left many longin g to make sense of the future and to speculate about the unknown.

As a response to these suspenseful circumstances\, In Anticipation< /em> is a collaboration that reflects the condition of anticipation by dev eloping a closer engagement with multi-media proposals and unrealized work s by Elizabeth Axtman\, Fang Lu\, Jillian Mcdonald\, Aernout Mik and Kamau Amu Patton. In order to address significant aspects within this contempor ary moment\, each artist was commissioned to engage with one of five inter related inquiries that belong to both art discourse and other spheres of e xperience. These inquiries are titled as Question of Truth\, Friction\, Me tamorphosis\, Re-enactments\, and Alternate Realities and dually function to activate a deeper understanding of the artists' practice as well.

The provocative ideas contained in each sub-theme and the outcome of the proposals hinge on the viewer's imagination and participation. Throug h three interconnected sites including a website\, a live event\, and limited edi tion artist prints\, each artist proposal is given a suggestive space where the project can engage the viewer in the act of making predictions w ithout any promise of resolution. While In Anticipation is largel y situated in the realm of the unknown\, the entire project is intended to mirror the multiple states of anticipation that persist as conditions of the present time.
