Chapter Two of the Afro-futures exhibition, Still here tomorrow to high five you yesterday… opens at Zeitz MOCAA, with the launch of Dubship I – Black Starliner by artist, Ralph Borland.
Join Zeitz MOCAA on 5 April 2019 for music, talks and refreshments, for the launch in the BMW Atrium. Dubship I – Black Starliner forms part of the exhibition’s ongoing exploration of the phenomenon of travel and migration through imagination. Alternative realities leads us to explore the intersection between history, fiction and sound.
An African Robots vs SPACECRAFT project, the installation takes its name from the Black Star Line shipping company established by Jamaican political activist Marcus Garvey in 1919.
Founded as a wholly black-owned and staffed shipping line with the eventual aim of repatriating the descendants of African slaves from the Americas and Caribbean back to Africa.
