In this exhibition, Jon Gray tells an Afrofuturist fictional narrative through chosen works from the museum’s permanent collection and original drawings by artist Oasa DuVerney. Gray transports the museum visitor to the future world of 2077 in order to rethink, reposition, and reclaim object stories and identities. Freed from the confines of classical and historic interpretation, Gray’s experimental presentation creates a space for alternate layers of meaning and reflection. Ultimately, the exhibition brings to life the power of objects, the endurance of their stories, and the fragility of the natural world.

Available through February 13.

Part of: Afrofuturism
