A Multimedia Exploration of Afrofuturism and Art!

In this installment of the Stoop Series, we will explore the gamut of Afrofuturism through a number of mediums including visual art, literature, film, music, and dance. Afrofuturism aficionados Greg Tate & Ashley Clark will discuss the ancient and recent history of Afrofuturism, putting it in its bohemian, post-modern context. Acclaimed filmmaker Terence Nance will screen his latest cutting-edge short Swimming In Your Skin. Avant-garde hip-hop artist H Prizm (of Anti-Pop Consortium) will spin his freshest electro beats, while freestyle dancers: Linda LaNaija, (of Mawu) and Calvin Booker, known for his new spin on tap dance and house dance…dance on. Additionally, there will be live painting around the theme of Afrofuturism by Ericka Hagan aka Egypt.

Illuminating the arts and life around us in Brooklyn, BRIC’s Stoop Series features artistic performances, presentations, participatory activities and dynamic conversations. Drop in and explore music, visual art, film, media, storytelling, comedy, and other creative fields.
