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/
