Artist Talk: There Are Black People in the Future

An event in the framework of "Shaping the Past"

Join us for an artist talk about the Kansas City iteration of There Are Black People in the Future featuring Alisha B. Wormsley and the group of contributing Kansas City artists. After the unveiling of Alisha B. Wormsley’s billboard reading “There Are Black People in the Future” in the Crossroads Arts District (Broadway & Pershing), the Goethe Pop Up, together with Wormsley, invited nine local BIPOC artists to react to this billboard through visuals and text. The exhibition front on glass will present works of art by Izsys Archer, Jessica Ayala, Arianna Bonner, Mona Cliff, José Faus, Sheri Purpose Hall, Glyneisha Johnson, Jada Patterson, and Harold Smith.

On October 18th at 2:00 pm CDT we will welcome the contributing artists together with Wormsley for a virtual artist talk as they discuss the Kansas City iteration of There Are Black People in the Future and their visions of how to imagine Black futures. The talk will be moderated by Kreshaun McKinney, Manager of Audience Engagement at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. This artist talk takes place on October 18th at 2:00 pm CDT over Zoom. Registration is required.
