“Blackbox: An Afrofuturist Opus” (April 28th, 2017-May 17th, 2017), is a discursive platform and group exhibition in three acts, that explores and makes visible the multidimensional ways that artists are engaging with strategies of Afrofuturism. Participating artists have contributed works across media, constructing a landscape that evokes the sonic, visual, and literary expressions of Afrofuturism. The strategies observed and researched in preparation for the exhibition, will form the foundation for a forthcoming multi-year project: the development of an original Afrofuturist inspired opera.
