Artist’s Talk: Stacey Robinson
January 24, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Join us for artist Stacey Robinson’s talk “Branding the AfroFuture.” Robinson’s work is featured in the museum’s upcoming exhibition “AfroFantastic: Black Imagination and Agency in the American Experience.”
Stacey Robinson’s work addresses ideas of “Black Utopias” as spaces of peace away from colonial influence by considering past and present Black protest movements and the art movements that document(ed) them. He is part of the collaborative team “Black Kirby” with artist John Jennings that creates comic books, gallery exhibitions, and lectures that deconstruct the work of artist Jack Kirby and re-imagine Black resistance spaces inspired by Hip Hop, religion, the arts and sciences. An Associate Professor of Graphic Design at the University of Illinois, Robinson completed his Master of Fine Arts at the University of Buffalo and is an Arthur Schomburg fellow.
Mark your calendars for additional events related to the exhibition “AfroFantastic: Black Imagination and Agency in the American Experience” which opens January 14 and runs through April 2, 2017. The exhibition, curated by Rollins students under the direction of Julian Chambliss, Ph.D., Professor of History will explore the complex sociopolitical forces linked to the black imagination in the American experience from the 19th century to present day.
