In 2040….. suggests that the role of the artist in society may be shifting – moving from a focus on personal expression and more toward public, creative actions as a central contributor to the general discourse of the society they live in.  Questions arise- are artists increasingly interested in working in new partnerships apart from conventional outlets; will the notion of community drastically alter; how do artists bring emotions of faith and structures of religion back into the artistic canon; what is the relation of artists to the use and misuse of power; can a critique of the arts hierarchy produce radical change; how do artists project what innovative strategies they can create to develop sustainable platforms for their ideas; what is the underlying physics of human reflection and ideation that brings the spiritual back into focus? The artists working for In 2040….. make art reflecting their response to these questions. They are projecting, in essence, what their work may be like in 25 years at which point they become mentors to an emerging generation of artists not yet born.” – Clayton Campbell
