Futuro Primitivo is an art exhibiton of Portuguese comix and illustration artists, curated by Texan artist Nevada Hill. In this show you can see the original work of 30 different artists that made Futuro Primitivo comix book, in a seminal project of mixing different strips from different artists making all together a brand new comix story.
Chili Com Carne founder, Marcos Farrajota, stated that “PRIMITIVE FUTURE” was to be the last manifesto of the Art of Publishing and hence, he invited ALL members of the Chili Com Carne to participate in this volume!
The given theme was dystopian and post-apocalyptic Science Fiction. As an inspiration, each author was asked to choose an item from a list of some of the biggest technological creations that caused Humanity to move forward into abyss: weapons, agriculture, fire, shelter, wheel, metal, currency, printing, steam engine, electricity, nuclear power, transistor, the pill and Dolly... The comics were combined exquisite corpse style. Strips / panels/ comics were reorganized and mixed together, so that it would create a "meta-story" with the sum of all these “graphic-narrative units” of various comics.
