Afro-Futurist Manifesto: Blackness Reimagined

The Reginald F. Lewis Museum is excited to partner with Galerie Myrtis and the James E. Lewis Museum of Art at Morgan State University to present the groundbreaking exhibition “Afro-Futurist Manifesto: Blackness Reimagined” for the first time in the United States. Curated by Myrtis Bedolla for the 2022 Venice Biennale, “Afro-Futurist Manifesto” brings together a stellar assemblage of African-American Artists who construct a future forged in transatlantic links and Afrofuturism’s ideology to expand the notion of Blackness at the intersection of technology and liberation. This existence has been conceived, as asserted by author Kevin Young, in “Elsewhere … the remapping of what’s here,” forming an alternative reality where one’s freedom and humanity is found.

Featuring the works of Tawny Chatmon, Larry Cook, Morel Doucet, Monica Ikegwu, M. Scott Johnson, Delita Martin, Arvie Smith & Felandus Thames.
