Alternative Futures will present a series of video works by contemporary artists, Alicia Grullon, she/her; Cauleen Smith, she/her; Cassils, they/them, in collaboration with Fanaa, she/her, Keijaun Thomas, she/her, and Rafael Esparza, he/him; and Macon Reed, they/she. Employing literal plans for equity, as well as more abstracted approaches, the works presented in this series will highlight the myriad ways artists visualize a more equitable world through explorations of the divine, the possibilities of imagination, and the power of the collective. By amplifying voices that continue to face marginalization and violence at the hands of white supremacy and the legacy of colonialism, Alternative Futures asks us to recognize and revere historically and presently excluded folks and prompts us to envision radically new futures.
