The exhibition 2050: Breve Storia del Futuro (A Brief History of the Future) at Palazzo Reale in Milan questions our future up to 2050 and enlightens our views on current and future social themes. The inspiration for the exhibition comes from the book A Brief History of the Future by Jacques Attali, published in 2006, in which the author speculates on the future of the world and our society.

With over 50 paintings, sculptures, photos, videos, installations and digital art, the exhibition addresses major social themes such as over-consumption, global conflicts, scarcity of natural resources, social- and economic inequality, and the mutation of the human species. The works are by internationally acclaimed artists like Hiroshi Sugimoto, Alighiero Boetti, Bodys Isek Kingelez, Andy Warhol, David LaChapelle, Andreas Gursky, Yang Yongliang and Francis Alÿs.

Admission to this exhibition is included in the ticket for the Umberto Boccioni exhibition.
