The assistant curator Naima Keith takes us on a tour of the groundbreaking exhibit “The Shadows Took Place” at The Studio Museum in Harlem about Afro-futurism and contemporary art. Afro-futurism explores race through the lens of science fiction, fantasy and magic realism. In the story, we look at works from artists around the world grappling with Afro-futurism through photography, painting, drawing, sculpture and video. We also look at the influences on Afro-futurism from science fiction writers such as Octavia Butler and Samuel Delany, sonic innovator Sun Ra, futuristic movies like Star Wars, District 9 & The Wiz and the music videos of Parliament Funkadelic and Labelle.
