Sparkplug presents Something Other Than The Present, a group exhibition exploring the desire for non-existent places, unreachable times, and unattainable states of being. The common human longing to transcend one's current existence is reflected throughout contemporary culture, from romance novels and sci-fi conventions to rapture-obsessed religious groups and nostalgic political movements. In Something Other Than The Presents, the members of DCAC's Sparkplug collective present work that both reflects and comments on the common human longing for places, times, and states that are, ultimately, unattainable.
