Breaking down the metaphoric meta-narratives and subtext in his Afrofuturistic work, Quentin VerCetty will discuss ways in which he explores Afrofuturism's relation to the Pluriverse. He will also give an interactive augmented reality demonstration of how he uses his art to encourage ideas around social change.
Quentin VerCetty (MAAE 2020, Concordia) is an award-winning multidisciplinary storyteller and an ever-growing interstellar tree. He is one of the world's leading Afrofuturistist A-R-Tographers, a founding member of the international Black Speculative Arts Movement, and is the first artist to be commissioned by Carnegie Hall for their 2022 Afrofuturism music festival.
