Alternative Guide to the Universe

This major Hayward summer show is
a guide to an artistic landscape that stretches to the far horizons of imaginative experience. A collection of inventive and beautiful pieces, Alternative Guide to the Universe is a rare opportunity to discover works from self-taught artists and architects, fringe physicists; dreamers and visionary engineers, all of whom seek to reinvent the world we live in.

Alternative Guide to the Universe focuses on individuals who develop their ideas and practices outside of official institutions and established disciplines. Eccentric and inspiring, their work ingeniously departs from accepted ways of thinking in order to re-imagine the rules of culture and science. Spanning a wide range of forms and materials, it includes epic paintings of alternative calendars as well as obsessively detailed drawings
of the human nervous system; scientific charts and fantastical engineering plans; functioning robots and blueprints for cities of the future and the evolution of human consciousness.

Taken together, the speculative visions in Alternative Guide to the Universe rival the wildest inventions of science fiction – with the difference that these artists actually believe in the validity and veracity of all that they describe and propose. Whether speculating on mysteries of time and space or charting the unseen energy flows of our bodies and minds, their imaginative creations invite the viewer into a universe where ingenuity trumps received wisdom.
