As part of the Connecticut College Biennial Symposium on Arts & Technology, Hygienic Art Galleries will be hosting its own extension of the show in an exhibition titled “Future Perfect.”

Curated by Conn College assistant professor of art Nadav Assor, the show will feature over a dozen pieces from artists from around the world that seek to expand our perceptions of technology, art and the future. Many of the pieces will be interactive. A “forced leisure” hammock, for example, will squeeze you if it senses that you aren't relaxed enough, while a robot hand will swipe your palm while pretending that you are a cellphone. Other pieces will feature a virtual reality video game, 3D printing and interactive environments, among more traditional artistic mediums.

An opening reception will take place from 4:30 to 9 p.m. Friday at Hygienic Galleries, and the show will run through March 3. The reception is free and open to the public. Hygienic Galleries is located at 79 Bank St., New London. Admission is free. Hours are 2-7 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday and noon-4 p.m. Sunday; (860) 443-8001.
