PCA Faculty Elena Sorokina Curated the "Museum (Science) Fictions" Exhibition at Centre Pompidou

Centre Pompidou

This month, The Centre Pompidou will be exhibiting the project Museum (Science) Fictions, a project that shows how the historical meetings between “museum” and “science fiction” have served as a reference for current encounters between radical speculative fiction and museums’ scientific narratives.

The project comprises a series of performative conferences, a temporary display and other interventions by various artists and curators. The one week long exhibition will take place at the Galerie Prospective, 4th floor of the Centre Pompidou.
