Building Afrotopia

BY STACEY ROBINSON
@ VOL 16 ON APR 14, 2016

"The work becomes a conversation about class, race, gender and appropriation."

In Building Afrotopia from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, artist Stacey Robinson illustrates how speculating black futures became paramount in his artistic practice as a response to the global displacement of Black and Indigenous people. Robinson shares recent work, beginning with his current Pan-African flag series, representing nations where Black and Indigenous populations are controlled by extreme measures. Robinson then shares works from an in-progress book, 100 Afrofuturists Practitioners, depicting people building future spaces where Black peace exists using S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art(s), and Math). Lastly, Robinson presents works inspired by the past Black Renaissance speculative Black Futures, with Afrofuturist digital collages inspired by Romare Bearden, James Denmark, Manzel Bowman, and other past and contemporary mixed media collage artists.
