Installation Images: Vertigo @ Midnight 23 - March 6, 2015

Vertigo @ Midnight opens dialogue about disorientation and equilibrium through the lens of African Diasporic Vertigo as a cultural idiom in AfroFuturist and speculative art. The artwork in this exhibition ventures into the crossroads, shifting and challenging everything we think we know about race, space, gender, science, magic, technology, the alien and the human.
