Arch 402 are proud to present an exhibition of new work by London based artist Mike Ballard.
Taking the title from Manfred Kircheimers 1979 film of early New York subway painting, Ballard presents a new installation of recent works, including painting, collage and photographic prints.
Ballard reminds us how popular imagery absorbs past eras' fantasies of the future, processing them into today's curiosities, junk, and endearingly mistaken conceptions of the world we now inhabit. In doing so he also reminds us that our own fantasies of the future are sure to be lacking in many crucial, unforeseeable aspects, complicating the way we locate ourselves temporally.
