Black Sci-Fi ArtDec 1 | 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Hosted by film and dance artist Kemi Craig, Blackspace Sci-Fi Club is a space to gather and explore fantasy, speculative narratives, and science fiction by and for people of the African diaspora. Over three sessions, a lounge space will be offered at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, for us to imagine, dream, be empowered, and be inspired by stories that conceptualize Blackness at the merging of past, present, and future. Each session will have a unique focus drawing on music, books, and art as vehicles for connection and conversation. Don’t miss the final installment of this exciting new series, Black Sci-Fi Art!
Look at the work of contemporary artists of the African diaspora who work through mediums such as performance, new media, photography, painting, collage, and installation and do an art-making activity inspired by one of their techniques. No art experience is necessary!
In conjunction with AGGV project Blueprints for the Afrofuture curated by guest curator, Kemi Craig.
Blackspace Sci-fi Club Series is an invitation to people who identify as a person of the African Diaspora or as Black. Admission by donation.
