Where is the Madness You Promised Me brings together a selection of international dystopian paintings that go beyond the typical gray, post-apocalyptic scene. Inspired by personal experience and real-life observations, the works in this exhibition imagine potential dire futures while remaining firmly rooted in fears and anxieties sparked by present conditions.

The paintings presented act as vehicles of social commentary by exploring extreme classism, deteriorating environments, global reliance on technology, and various ills that could spawn bleak new futures.
