Franklin Furnace THE FUTURE OF
THE PRESENT
2007-08


The Future of the Present program has evolved from net casts, 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. These events encompass every gradation of possibility between two poles, the body of the artist and the body of the net.

Franklin Furnace Archive, Inc. is pleased to announce the grant recipients for The Future of the Present 2007-08:

Sarah Drury Philadelphia, PA
Robert Ransick Jackson Heights, NY

Since becoming a "virtual institution" on its 20th anniversary, Franklin Furnace has developed partnerships designed to present complex works of art and bring them to the widest possible audiences. In the past we have teamed with such collegial institutions as Downtown Community Television, Eyebeam Atelier, Hunter College, Rhizome.org, Location One, Parsons School of Design, Postmasters Gallery, Pseudo Programs and The Kitchen: as well as venues in Managua, Nicaragua, Split, Croatia and Tokyo, Japan.
