REDEFINING CULTURE THROUGH ART 

 

“Whether through literature, visual arts, music, or grassroots organizing, Afrofuturists redefine culture and notions of blackness for today and the future. Both an artistic aesthetic and a framework for critical theory, Afrofuturism combines elements of science fiction, historical fiction, speculative fiction, fantasy, Afrocentricity, and magic realism with non-Western beliefs. In some cases, it’s a total reenvisioning of the past and speculation about the future rife with cultural critiques. ”

-Ytasha Womack, author, and filmmaker

Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci-Fi and Fantasy Culture

 

In honor of Black History month, Dr. Barbara Ann Teer's National Black Theatre (NBT) will host its latest lobby exhibition CHANGE: Conversations With the Creator. The exhibition will feature 27 new works of art by artists of color primarily located in New York City. These new works were curated to explore the space of #Afrofuturism as a gateway to manifest, strategize and capture a diverse outlook of the future of blackness in the form of activism, self-love, wholeness, ancestry and liberation. This exhibit will remain open in NBT’s gallery space and will be on display until April 14, 2018.
