A pop-up art exhibit in Manhattan explores the future of society.

The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center on Broadway between Broome and Grand streets in SoHo is featuring 40 artists and performers in an interactive experience called 'CTRL ALT'.

Organizers say the space gives artists a place to design their own version of the future, by exploring culture and the environment.

"We looked at the future from the place of science fiction, alternative narrative," said Jeanny Kim, acting director of the APAC. "Because a lot the narratives out there are given to us, and we wanted to take it and decide on our own, how are we going to create the future for ourselves."

"I’m trying to bring awareness to what happens with our consumer electronics towards their end of live and an alternate to that pathway," said artist Wiena Lin.

To check it out, the free exhibit is open until 9 p.m. Sunday at 477 Broadway, the former site of the Pearl River Mart.
