Design / Artifacts of the Future
America’s sixties-era love affair with space exploration and the futuristic pop culture that accompanied it is the obsession of Buffalo-based filmmaker Martin McGee. McGee is fascinated with the interconnection among high culture (painting, literature), design (furniture, apparel, housewares), and pop culture (television, comics, toys) that is so remarkable during this period of American history.
A Palm Springs story with Buffalo roots
Martin McGee’s quest to organize a full-blown exhibition that showcases space age design began in 2004 with a film McGee screened at a Hallwalls members’ show and continued in 2013 with his The Future Is History exhibit at 27 Chandler. Last month, McGee debuted a lobby exhibit in association with the Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale. Check the Artifacts of the Future Facebook page for more information.
