Inspired by the future perfect tense, art historian and critic Andy Campbell will reflect on the various historical legacies and speculative futures (as well as the vicissitudes of plant care) at play in Beatriz Cortez and Kang Seung-Lee's Becoming Atmosphere. Both scripted and improvised, this semi-collaborative talk is devised as a companion to the exhibition, and is inspired by the difficulties and pleasures of finding common cause. Q+A to follow.

He is the author of Bound Together: Leather, Sex , Archives, and Contemporary Art as well as Queer X Design: 50 Years of Signs, Symbols, Banners, Logos, and Graphic Art of LGBTQ.
