Description

We invite you to transcend time and ideologies with us as we enter the future-based utopian space of the "Hacking Black Futures" exhibition reception on Wednesday, January 17, 2018.

"Hacking Black Futures" is a special feature of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival and it is exclusively organised by students of OCAD university. The exhibition uses design speculation and immersive installation to transform BAND19 into a futuristic residence in a Black-centric society devoid of oppression.

Through the collaboration of an intergenerational team of Black designers, artists, photographers and makers, this exhibition investigates ideas about the future with a focus on Blackness and Black-affiliated places and spaces.

The contributing artists are Andre Baynes, Denzel Arthur, Lequanne Collins-Bacchus, Tura Cousins, Ene Agi, Thomas Graham, Ashley Lewis, Daejuawn Hamilton, Maisha Marshall-Ende, Renee Mathews, Kelvin Mendie, Addae Nurse, Michael Otchie, Kimani Peter, Peter Scott and Olivia Spence.

The exhibition is curated by Andre Baynes and Chiedza Pasipanodya.

"Hacking Black Futures" is on exhibition at BAND Gallery from January 15 - January 21, 2018, 12 pm to 6 pm.

This event is free of charge, donations are accepted. Light refreshments will be served.

A media only preview will take place on Monday, January 15, 2018, 10 am - 12 pm.
