Futureways is a unique collaboration between the Whitney Museum of American Art, Printed Matter, Inc., and Arsenal Pulp Press. Futureways is a faux science fiction "novel"; each chapter is written by a different contributor, all of whom create fantastic stories that simultaneously work within and outside the genre.
Futureways is the story of an art exhibition in the distant future, the biennale of a future civilization. With humour and imagination, each chapter deals with the transport of art objects to the venue of the biennale, a task difficult enough in the modern era but even more tenuous in the imagined futures of the writers. Throughout it all, art, fiction, and the act of imagination are taken to task, resulting in a book that is both satirical and forward-thinking.
