A Conversation on Afrofuturism at the Met

mutu met

On December 11, 2019, I moderated a panel featuring artist and filmmaker Cauleen Smith, graphic novelist and comic artist John Jennings, and Camae Ayewa and Rasheedah Phillips of Black Quantum Futurism. In conjunction with The NewOnes, will free us, artist Wangechi Mutu’s 2019 facade commission for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the panelists discussed the aesthetics and philosophy of Afrofuturism, a flourishing cultural movement that combines science fiction, history, and fantasy to explore black diasporic experience.
