This groundbreaking exhibition explores the impact of the Space Race, science fiction, and the explosive growth of Cold War-era technological innovation on avant-garde artists of the Americas from the 1940s to the 1970s. features over 80 works in a range of media and creative styles—from expressionist paintings and kinetic sculptures to graphite drawings and conceptual pieces. With loans from public and private collections from North and South America, the exhibition investigates how artists from the United States and several Latin American countries interpreted notions of conquest, discovery, and crossing into new territories—both terrestrial and celestial.

The art featured in Past Futures is presented against the backdrop of the Cold War, as the United States called for pan-Americanist economic and political policies that emphasized stronger North and South American solidarity against the spread of Communism. Simultaneously, the rise of the Space Race gripped international attention, and the science fiction genre flourished in film and literature cultures across the Americas. The exhibition investigates how artists from the United States and several Latin American countries, including Argentina, Chile, and Mexico, navigated these complex political and cultural shifts and showcases their creative reactions to the emergence of new technologies, such as robotics, rocketry, and computer systems. The exhibition is curated by Sarah J. Montross, Andrew W. Mellon post-doctoral curatorial fellow.
