Consider multimedia artists’ take on “The Future of the Future” (through October 25) at DOX Centre for Contemporary Art ($9), a three-level gallery and sculpture terrace that forges collaborations with international artists. Don’t miss Brooklyn-born cultural critic Norman Klein’s The Imaginary 20th Century, in which projections of whimsical drawings are set to original sound compositions (through October 24), and Gilbert and George: ROADS, a photography exhibit by the provocative duo known for shooting London skinheads (October 7 through January 2).
Savor the last of the season with "Heat" (through September 17), a free exhibit of summer-themed photography, paintings, and installations at Meet Factory. Helmed by famed Czech sculptor David Černý —the man behind the black sculptures of babies seen around the city—this modern-art gallery, cinema, and performance space also hosts international D.J.'s and bands.
Peek into the creative psyche in "Case for Reoccurrence of Child Illness” (September 22 through October 17), a group show at Karlin Studios depicting artists’ innermost thoughts. Seventeen artists’ studios are housed above the main exhibition space in this repurposed factory building, set in a quiet section of gentrifying Karlin. Check out the existentialist cartoons of Miroslav Barták, a renowned Czech artist who rarely shows in contemporary-art settings.
