FUTURISM

New possibilities of hope and splendour.

Co-Curated by wāni

Featuring work by artists farhiya jama, Fatma Hussein, Gideon Wilonja, Ivy Mutuku and Peter Waples-Crowe.

European Futurism was an art movement which began in Italy at the beginning of the 20th century inspired by new technology, fast cars and speed. Bla(c)k Futurism is about creating Art out of strength, pain, loss and successes. It is fundamentally rooted in being denied a full history and looking to the future to correct that.

FUTURISM  explores innovation in the 21st century and what possibilities arise for Intergenerational Bla(c)k artists today as they take on the challenge of looking to the future to create new possibilities and images of hope and splendour.
