More Things to Come

The organisers of the Things to Come exhibition at the Petach Tikva Museum of Art, Israel, sent me their photos of the show earlier this week. As with the other recent exhibitions that I haven’t managed to attend it’s good to see how everything looks in situ, and also see some of the other exhibits.

The art pieces are all related to science fiction old and new, with my airship illustration (as seen in The Steampunk Bible) and a couple of other works representing the old (or new-as-old) side of things. I’m not used to seeing my work enlarged to such a huge size so this was a treat. The only larger reproductions have been a window display for one of the Cradle of Filth album covers which filled a whole window of Tower Records, London, in 2001, and stage backdrops for Cradle of Filth and Melechesh. I can’t identify any of the other exhibits until the catalogue arrives but I really like the iridescent metal construction that’s lying on the gallery floor. All the photos are by Elad Sarig, and are shown courtesy of the Petach Tikva Museum of Art. My thanks again to Doreet LeVitte Harten for selecting my work, and to Avshalom Suliman for dealing with the printing and other details.

    NICE curation! Takes everything ‘out of genre’ and puts on par w/the best gallery exhibitions.

    I spy Ward Shelley’s History of SF chart
    >http://www.wardshelley.com/paintings/pages/HistoryofScienceFiction.html

    which was in Jeff Vandermeer’s WONDERBOOK (also containing Coulthart art)

    Ah, well spotted. I ought to have noticed that seeing as I also helped design the VanderMeer book. I think that chart was a late arrival, however. The book was so big, and contained so much disparate artwork, that things were still arriving from artists after I’d handed the files to Abrams.
