Objects, bodies, paintings, vessels or fragments by thirteen different artists that represent a wide array of lived identities – indigenous, LGTBQ+ and females – will show us the magic of imagining fictional scenes, spaces and bodies to find our freedom. Using science fiction as a narrative and conceptual tool, the exhibition draws a future that includes all of us. With the statement “diversity is not an option. It is a minimal requirement to be relevant”, the artist, activist and curator of the exhibition, Jaishri Abichandani, hopes that the American museum and gallery system changes and stops failing to represent these artists (and citizens).
