Monday, Febuary 3rd - Friday, February 28th

Three artists - Daniel Kojo Schrade (Germany), Bernard Akoi-Jackson (Ghana) and Adejoke Tugbiyele (United States) - use the lens of fiction to address issues of alienation and otherness. They travel through space and time to explore identity and reexamine the past. Afrofuturism, a term coined in the early 1990s, addresses themes and concerns of the African diaspora using elements of science fiction and magic realism to critique the loss and disinheritance of the past while exploring aspirations for the future.
