Alisha Wormsley: Remnants of
An Advanced Technology
This exhibition foregrounds Alisha B. Wormsley's celebrated engagements with Black futurism—a genre of reimagining Black life often with a futuristic aesthetic. The imagery in this exhibition draws, in part, from her established body of work, "Children of NAN", which Wormsley describes as an archive of objects, photos, video footage, films, sounds, philosophies, myths, rituals, and performances that she's been compiling for over a decade to document the ways that Black women care for themselves, each other, and the earth. Featured image: Alisha Wormsley, High Priestess.

both stands and tables, and the pottery forms cobbled together from
wheel-thrown and hand-built components.
