"Past Futures, Present, Futures presents 101 unrealized proposals for New York City, dating from its formation to today with 101 reenactments
by invited artists, architects, writers and policy-makers to create alternative visions for the present and future of the city. With the belief that art
and architecture, beyond the production of new forms of capital or building solutions, have the power to re-imagine new forms of collective
aspiration, the exhibition will present a past and future historiography of novel ideas in New York to open discussion about relevant actions
in the city, their vectors of desire, methodologies, limits, audiences and agents."
