DETAILS: ELEKTRIK REVIVAL is a process-based art and design show that collects the work of John Jennings and Stacey Robinson (BLACK KIRBY) and the work of their digital transmedia artists’ collective MOTHERBOXX STUDIOS.
This newly formed collective of artists have created and designed a vivid and dynamic visual feast of the imagination to shock, entertain, challenge, and inspire.
The exhibit will feature a diverse body of in-progress graphic novel work, developmental designs,character sketches and prototypes related to an array of speculative stories set in the black U.S. South. These mind-bending creations will deal with issues around social justice, environmental racism, and other pressing concerns in our country.
The work in the exhibition is representational of all of the speculative genres including horror, sci- , steampunk, superhero, and fantasy.
Come and experience a vibrant graphic romp into multiple alternate pasts and boldly black possible futures.
