Barber and Stacey Robinson) and Red Spring (organized by Anderson with curators Danielle L. Littlefield, Sheree Renée Thomas, and Dacia Polk);
Curating the End of The World exhibition brings together an international cadre of artists whose work responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, anti-black violence, climate change, poor governance, trans-humanism, and an accelerating, technologically driven economic system on the verge of collapse, organized by Dr. Reynaldo Anderson, Tiffany E. Barber and Stacey Robinson with the Black Speculative Arts Movement. Follow-up exhibition Red Spring is dedicated to a pioneering forerunner of Afrofuturist art Algernon Miller and explores the circular nature of systemic racism and the public policies—public safety, health, and wealth—that adversely impact Black and indigenous communities – organized by Anderson, and curated by Sheree Renée Thomas, Danielle L. Littlefield, and Dacia Polk with Black Speculative Arts Movement. Select artists seen in Interspace include BLACKMAU, La’Nora Boror, S.
