Join multidisciplinary artist Alice Bucknell for an exclusive guided tour around Swamp City, her debut UK solo exhibition at HOXTON 253 art project space. The exhibition explores the crossovers between architecture, ecology, disaster capitalism, simulated environments and non-human intelligence through speculative fiction and game engines.

For the UK premiere of Swamp City (2021), a 34 minute-long film that imagines the Florida Everglades as a luxury eco-tourism retreat in a near-future reality of severe climate disruption, the speculative estate agency has been brought to life, temporarily transforming HOXTON 253’s gallery space into the offices of The Evergreen Group. It is complete with property listings, promotional pamphlets, 3D printed models, and slick metallic landscape prints, arranged inside a neon-tinted, houseplant-stuffed, copper-accented office space designed to lure in its millennial clientele and investors.

Bookings include a complimentary drink sponsored by Asahi Super Dry.​ Places are limited, reserve your ticket via https://bit.ly/3rWVy98

Exhibition runs: 6 – 29 May 2022 / Wed to Fri 1-7pm, Sat & Sun 11-5pm​
