The Intuitionists is a collaborative project organized by artists Heather Hart, Steffani Jemison, and Jina Valentine inspired by Colson Whitehead's novel The Intuitionist. The book is a work of speculative fiction that explores the relationship between progress, technology, and difference. Hart, Jemison, and Valentine used phrases from the text as inspiration for unusual keywords used to search The Drawing Center’s Viewing Program database. 
Over 60 artists were invited to submit works that responded to a particular phrase, which has also determined the sequence in which the art will be hung. This show will be the last Selections show as The Drawing Center prepares to transition to our new program to support emerging artists, Open Sessions. 
The Intuitionists will be on display from July 11 - August 24. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, July 10, from 6-8 p.m.

THE FUTURE WEIRD: Supra-Planetary Sovereigns

This November, the Future Weird returns loaded with the retro tropes of science fiction to pay tribute to space-age prophets, musicians and messiahs.
We start with John Akomfrah’s THE LAST ANGEL OF HISTORY, in which Black sci-fi becomes a futuristic Pan-African venture. In Akomfrah’s telling, early techno-centric experiments give way to messianic characters who swap dominating narratives of science and progress for cosmic philosophies.
This month we bring together interviews and testimonies of magnetic creative leaders who promise transcendence for their followers, and achieve intergalactic travel through prayer as well as funk. Photos, tape-recorded testimonies, and home videos from South African church services mix with Akomfrah’s all-star cast of American musicians, charismatic space captains and Star Trek heroines to consider belief, art, truth telling, and forms of authority.

When: THURSDAY NOVEMBER 14th @ 8PM & TUESDAY NOVEMBER 26th @ 8PM
Where: Spectacle Theater, 124 S. 3rd Street, Brooklyn, NY, 11211
How: $5
The Future Weird is a screening series exploring contemporary film from the global south – with an African bias. Our title, “the future weird”, is inspired by The State’s ongoing documentation of non-western futurisms: thestate.ae/

Mothership Connections: A Black Atlantic Synthesis of Neoclassical Metaphysics and Black Theology by Theodore Walker Jr.
Description:
Bringing a Black Atlantic approach to constructive postmodern efforts to understand and transcend modern worldviews and modern world orders, Mothership Connections draws upon the work of scholars in the tradition of W. E. B. Du Bois, Charles H. Long, Alfred North Whitehead, and Charles Hartshorne. The author shows that connections to the originating influences of transatlantic slavery and Black Atlantic experiences are essential to any adequate account of modernity and postmodernity. He also argues that metaphysics is essential to theology and moral theory, synthesizing neoclassical metaphysics and black theology to develop a Black Atlantic account of metaphysical aspects of struggle, power, and ethical deliberation.

I have to find this!!  My now Mission !

In the 1930s, a young man from Birmingham named Herman Poole Blount underwent a conversion experience and emerged Sun Ra, a member of the Angel Race. Sun Ra claimed he was a superior being from outer space who was sent to Earth to save its people through music. For four decades, he led his band, the Arkestra, through multiple iterations and diverse styles.

This year we celebrate the late Sun Ra’s 100th anniversary.

Sun Ra is considered one of the most influential and innovative musicians and artists of the 20th century for his contributions to jazz and his pioneering use of electronic instruments. He is remembered for the alien identity to which the musician remained faithful for his whole adult life.

For Sun Ra, that otherworldly identity was rooted in very real, earthly issues, including the deeply alienating experience of growing up in the Jim Crow South.

“He began to think of the Earth as a place where evil had been turned loose at some point, and everything got worse and worse,” John Szwed, Sun Ra’s biographer, said.

His philosophy and response to a brutal world were inspired by the vast body of literature he read, including science fiction and Egyptology.

Ytasha Womack says a science fiction narrative appealed to Sun Ra because the genre provides the possibility for radical transformation: “People create entirely different worlds that provide a lens to reimagine ourselves.”

Craig Harris, who played in the Arkestra, said the musical innovations Sun Ra pioneered were all in service of his philosophy.

“We’re looking at the same box, but we’re looking at it from different angles,” Harris said of Sun Ra’s musical process. “You’re looking at it from 354 degrees and I’m looking at it from 360 degrees. And that was the whole concept with [Sun Ra]… You can choose your own reality. There’s no limits.”

Featuring the voices of Ytasha Womack, filmmaker and author of Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci Fi and Fantasy Culture and Rayla 2212;” Hank Shocklee, music producer and co-founder of the hip-hop group Public Enemy; Craig Harris, trombonist and composer who performed with Sun Ra from 1976 to 1979; John Szwed, professor of music at Columbia University and author of Space is the Place: The Lives and Times of Sun Ra.

This audio piece features unheard archival audio courtesy of writer Mark Sinker, who interviewed Sun Ra for his essay in The Wire, “Loving the Alien.”
