Opening the Future constitutes an immensely powerful and sophisticated body of work, which pursues the aim of exploring new post-human figurativeness. The dominant theme addresses the subject of transgressive corporality and encompasses the contexts of future, morphological freedom and human enhancement technologies.

The logical and inevitable progress of technology evolution implies the emergence of new paradigms of gender, body and identity. The body becomes a symptom of the unnatural, edited and superior life form, posing a question of the possible shift of ethical lines and a change in definition of what is human.

Opening the Future extends the discourse of the Post Human, a visionary series of exhibitions curated by Jeffrey Deitch in 1992, which manifested the embrace of artificiality and projected the role of artists beyond redefining art; towards redefining life. The work of Joanna Grochowska integrates with the concepts of human enhancement technologies, the ideas of Elon Musk, Raymond Kurzweil and Jennifer Doudna, awarded the Nobel Prize for the development of a revolutionary genome editing method; seeking the new aesthetics of the future.
