Talk: ‘Indigenous Science Fiction, The Imagination, and Long-Term Thinking’

October 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Join us for a provocative conversation about indigenous science fiction, the imagination, and long-term thinking. Featured speakers are artist Cannupa Hanska Luger and author Dr. Jimena Canales. Both speakers are concerned with the nature of time – historic, present, and future – and how science/fiction, storytelling and long-term thinking intersect.

This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition Future Ancestral Technologies: nágshibi, featuring new art work by Luger. Future Ancestral Technologies is an approach to making art objects, videos, and performance with the intent to influence global consciousness. This Indigenous-centered science fiction uses creative storytelling to radically reimagine the future.

The conversation will be moderated by Leonie Bradbury, Henry and Lois Foster Chair of Contemporary Art Theory and Practice and Distinguished Curator-in-Residence at Emerson College.

Co-presented with Long Now Boston. Space is limited, please RSVP.
