Over the course of a year, The Registry of Promise consisted of four interrelated exhibitions, which are represented as chapters in this book. In these chapters, Chris Sharp reflects on our increasingly fraught relationship with what the future may or may not hold, and the work engages with and plays upon the various readings and mutability of promise, along with the inevitability of what may come, whether positive or negative. Such polyvalence is particularly topical, as we have shifted from the anthropocentric promise of modernity to a negative faith in the post-human. Richly illustrated with works and installation views, and an archive of previously published articles by Chris Sharp.

Contemporary artists tend to use new forms and materials to address a broader timeSpan in on ongoing dialogue between the past and the future;yet at the sametime, the exhibition reflects on the way in Which today’s artists are so Rediscovering examined material as bronze, stone or ceramic, That Appeared to have been relegated to the Purely academic sphere.These materials are rediscovered and used in a conceptual manner to reflect on themes examined: such as the monument, the fragment, the way material wear over time, and the recovery of the recent modernist past.
