Who knows what “Art of the Future” really is?

  • Modern art dates back over a century; so, can it still be considered “art of the future”?
  • Post-modern and contemporary art is present – not future.

On the other hand, futuristic art has also frequently gotten it right, or may yet demonstrate the correctness of its instincts.
