The Speculative Future of Blackness

Join us for a thought-provoking discussion on the speculative future of Black humanity. The attending artists draw inspiration from Afrofuturism, Black existentialism, spirituality, and futurist thought to construct a Black universe of tomorrow.

Join and follow the live conversation with Myrtis Gallery by opening the video below.

Myrtis Bedolla, Curator of The Afro-Futurist Manifesto: Blackness Reimagined exhibition, moderates a discussion with artists Tawny Chatmon, M. Scott Johnson, Delita Martin, and Arvie Smith, whose works offer discourse into African Americans' socio-political concerns and pays tribute to the resiliency, creativity, and spirituality that have historically sustained Black people.
