Lisa Lipton’s upcoming exhibition in the RBC New Works Gallery features a project that is part of the artist’s exploration into 1970s science fiction. Written in homage to Cordwainer Bird’s Canadian-produced science fiction series The Starlost from 1973, Lipton’s new project, Soon All Your Memories Will Be With Me, follows three characters as they journey through space in an attempt to save remaining descendants of human civilization aboard The Ship Ultimo. Using production methods and equipment from the era, the work also explores the theatrics of science fiction, including prophetic warnings, utopian aspirations and strange voyages, while replacing the traditional male lead that dominated the sci-fi genre with a female heroine.

This exhibition is simultaneously an immersive sound and light installation, as well as a film set where the artist’s latest sci-fi episode will unfold.

Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta. Curated by Lindsey Sharman. The RBC New Works Gallery features new artworks by Alberta artists and continues the Art Gallery of Alberta’s tradition of supporting and promoting Alberta artists.

Lindsey V. Sharman is Curator of the Art Gallery of Alberta. She has studied Art History and Curating in Canada, England, Switzerland and Austria, earning degrees from the University of Saskatchewan and the University of the Arts, Zurich.
