The Ethnocultural Art Histories Research Group (EAHR) is proud to launch of the Department of Art History vitrine exhibition Kaleidoscopic Futures: A Time Capsule for the Year 2222 featuring the work of artists Sophia Al-Maria, Jesse Tungilik, Camille Turner, Yannis Davy Guibinga and Pauline Loctin. Running 20 March through 6 April 2023, the the exhibition is curated by three students from Dr. Alice Ming Wai Jim’s ARTH 389: Issues in Ethnocultural Art Histories: Ethnic Futurisms and Contemporary Art (fall 2022).with texts by four additional students in the class. This exhibition is a culmination of reflections that emerged from the course which invited students to critically explore ethnic futurisms in contemporary art, particularly those that engage with speculative futurities: imagined future worlds created for and by Indigenous, Black, Asian, and other people of colour, where they not only survive but thrive. Similarly this vitrine exhibition brings together four artists of Qatari, Inuit, Jamaican, Gabon, and French ancestry and based across four different cities across the world that critically speculate on fantastic futures where racialized people flourish.
Kaleidoscopic Futures: A Time Capsule for the Year 2222, is open to the public to visit in person at Concordia’s Art History Vitrine, EV Building,3rd floor, near the Art History Offices, across from 3.760.
