Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci Fi & Fantasy Culture by Ytasha L. Womack (Oct 2013) www.iafrofuturism.com
Wangechi Mutu’s “Fantastic Journey” art show is on display at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. The show began Oct. 11, 2013 and runs through March 9. Born in Nairobi, Kenya and based in Brooklyn, Mutu creates “spectacular and provocative collages depicting female figures—part human, animal, plant, and machine—in fantastical landscapes.” The story below is a review of Fantastic Journey that appeared in Rhizome and references the book Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci Fi & Fantasy Culture. In fact, writer Brendan C. Byrne thanked Ytasha via Twitter for creating a useful primer on Afrofuturism. Read this great story below.
