Join Root Division this February for Diasporic Futurism Part II: The Future Futures. As a curatorial project, Diasporic Futurism was born out of the desire to showcase and celebrate emerging and established Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) artists whose work reckons with the themes of imagination, identity, place, and joy. Diasporas are in reference to the history of forced migration as a result of political, cultural, and physical subjugation, which is the story of many BIPOC peoples currently living in occupied land. Futurism envisions imaginative, alternate realities full of beauty, possibility, and liberation of the sort systematically denied to those populations because of a patriarchal, capitalist, white supremacist society.

This curatorial project launched in July 2020 with a virtual exhibition – Part I: The Present Future – and continues this February with Diasporic Futurism Part II: The Future Futures. This iteration of the exhibition will feature site-based performances and an immersive and multidimensional experience in the gallery that features: video installations, 3-D artwork, surrealist painting, sculpture, comic, and graphic drawings.
