Black Sci-Fi SoundsOct 6 | 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 Gallery, for participants to imagine, dream, be empowered, and be inspired by stories that conceptualize Blackness at the merging of past, present, and future. Don’t miss the first installment of this exciting new series, Black Sci-Fi Sounds!
Listen to records from visionaries such as Drexciya, Sun Ra, Grace Jones, Janelle Monae, Sons of Kemet, Flying Lotus, and Shabazz Palaces. These musicians and performance artists use mediums of jazz, techno, and pop to fabricate undersea worlds, intergalactic homes, and new perspectives on our everyday experiences. Bring a favorite artist that you would like to add as well!
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.
