Growing larger and larger the object undulated like a wide piece of cloth carried along on a moving current of water. "He could hear the babble of voices around him swelling to a mounting groan of panic. The sound went racing like a cresting wave back toward the Terminal where the thousands there would be lifting their gaze skyward. "Another Space Swimmer, Pat thought with sinking heart. It seemed as if it intended to swallow up the sky - for the brightness of day had blackened into night . . . .accepted their robot-like existence. Either way, the human race was doomed!

"Riotous Baroque" confronts pictures from the seventeenth century with art of the present day. The exhibition focuses on the "riotous" aspect and the proximity to life that is a recurring theme in the literature on the Baroque. The show wishes to extricate the concept of the Baroque from its conventional context within the history of style and to distance itself from formai artistic clichés. "Riotous Baroque" is not about pomp, ornament and gold, but about "Tributes to Precarious Vitality" - a vitality that is lived, rediscovered, lost, projected, and threatened by death.
