Extra Credit: “Deconstructing the Afrofuture”

stacey-robinson_the-harbinger

Please join us for a conversation with Stacey Robinson as we delve deeper into the idea of “the Afrofuture” as it relates to his work and research. As he contends, it’s become quite the hot topic. But “what’s beyond the aesthetics of cool future fashion, cutting edge music and appropriated catch phrases” of Afrofuturism, he asks. And what does it mean to “brand” it? The event will begin with an interview by a special guest, followed by open discussion and refreshments.

In celebration of El Museo’s 35th year, this event is part of “Extra Credit,” an event series where exhibiting artists can interact with their audiences in a more intimate setting, and explore topics or themes related to their work. It is open to the public ($5 suggested donation) and free for El Museo members.
