Capping a year during which the presidential election cycle has shaped and crowded out public discourse, Past Tense, Future Tense looks at core issues that continue to divide us from one another. Drawing on historical references and present day events, the artists in this exhibition use humor, wit, and satire to illuminate and engage us in these critical arenas.

The Arts at CIIS is a contemporary arts exhibition program that cultivates community engagement and creative and integrative approaches to the urgent challenges facing society today. Through exhibitions, publications, and events featuring emerging and established artists, The Arts at CIIS strives to promote pluralism in the arts, to support artists in the creation of new work, and to foster dynamic and critical dialogues within and across communities.


Our exhibition space at Mission Street was created with the generous support of Helen and Raj Desai and Robert Matta.
