Future of the Present

In 2008, Franklin Furnace combined the Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art and The Future of the Present programs into one entitled the Franklin Furnace Fund, supported by Jerome Foundation and the Starry Night Fund of Tides Foundation. Initiated in 1985 with the support of Jerome Foundation, Franklin Furnace annually awarded Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art grants to emerging artists selected by peer panel review to enable them to prepare major performance art works for presentation in New York; inaugurated in 1998 in collaboration with Pseudo Programs, Inc. as a series of performance art netcasts for worldwide audiences, The Future of the Present evolved into a sophisticated examination of issues raised by the Internet as an artistic medium and public venue. Franklin Furnace made the decision to combine these programs because during the last decade, artists have created works on every point of the spectrum between the body of the artist and the circulatory network of the Internet.

The Future of the Present program has evolved from netcasts co-produced beginning in 1998 with Pseudo Programs, Inc., into sophisticated public events we produce in partnership with an array of venues in and around New York and the world, that encompass every gradation of possibility between two poles, the body of the artist and the body of the net.

FF PSEUDO PROGRAMS, Inc.

Franklin Furnace at Pseudo Programs, Inc. marks the first season of Franklin Furnace's collaboration with Pseudo Online Network. Franklin Furnace is a 22-year-old artists' organization based in New York City devoted to temporal art forms (such as artists' books, installation and performance art) which became identified with artists' fight for freedom of expression during the culture wars of the late 80s and early 90s. Franklin Furnace's decision to close its TriBeCa exhibition to "downtown" audiences spread across the world. Pseudo Programs, Inc. is the world's largest producer of Internet television, broadcasting over thirty shows featuring emerging artists, news and entertainment.

This section of Franklin Furnace's site was designed by Yoon Hoe(Kelly) Gu yhg200@nyu.edu

Performances are netcast live from Pseudo's studios, and then archived on Pseudo's servers for at least six months. To view upcoming and archived performances, download the RealPlayer plug-in, available at www.real.com.
