Event Details

Screening of Pumzi, a Kenyan science-fiction piece by Wanuri Kahiu, and two films about Drexciya: the Britist Hydra Decapita and Simon Rittmeier’s film Drexciya, about European refugees to Africa.

Panelists will include artists Adejoke Tugbiyele and Daniel Kojo Schrade, performing artist OluShola Cole, and Naima J. Keith, Curator of the show The Shadows took Shape at The Studio Museum in Harlem.

Moderated by Karen E. Milbourne, Curator, National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution.

The films are presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Afrofuturism: Artists on Three Continents Explore 'Black to the Future'", on display until Feb. 28. Three artists - from Germany, Ghana and the United States - use the lens of fiction to address issues of alienation and otherness. They travel through space and time to explore identity and reexamine the past.

In cooperation with the National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution.
