Transfuturism at SLUMA

    Transfuturism: an art-activism movement shown through photography and oral history and uses technique from Afrofuturism to uplift the lives of trans and gender non-conforming individuals. At SLUMA’s new exhibition we examine genderfluid individuals taking the punches in comics, cartoons, pop-culture while mostly strong cismasculine characters are the “heroes.” Artist, Amber Johnson, photographs and records perspectives and experiences from trans and genderfluid people of color to illustrate how transgressing gender results in liberation, but also new forms of identity challenge comes with. Artist, Wriply Bennet, creates a comic book sketch that transforms the participant into an Afrofuturistic superhero. Transfuturism is open till June 5th.
