Inspired by the universe of Frank Herbert meshed with Alejandro Jodorowsky’s visual grammar, planet Arrakis landed on earth for one-month in the form of a visual art group show, DUNE.
For those unfamiliar with the franchise, Dune: A Sci-fi Art Show was an introduction to the fictional world and its multigenerational appeal. For fans, the exhibition pitched the relevance of the story again; a reminder in the context of many current issues of oil conflicts in the Middle East and debates on the future of Artificial Intelligence.
An air of surrealism honored the artworks, coupled with a renewed belief in art as a tool to further the stories of science. The works by 15 artists essentially folded fact into fantasy.
