Visit LOMAA’s Instagram page from Monday, September 21 to Saturday, September 26, 2020 to explore the work of Quentin VerCetty. The week will culminate in an Instagram Live talk with VerCetty on Saturday, September 26 at 4 p.m. ET.
Quentin VerCetty is an award-winning international multidisciplinary visual storyteller, arts educator, artivist, and an ever-growing interstellar planet. His scholarly work explores Afrofuturism as a teaching tool and has coined the terms Sankofanology and Rastafuturism. Artistically, his work explores the social implications of African monuments as technofossils for the future and imagineering safe spaces for Black people and culture to exist. VerCetty’s work has been exhibited globally and has been featured in numerous publications. VerCetty is also one of the founding leaders of the Black Speculative Arts Movement and launched the Canadian chapter in 2016. He is also the co-editor of the first Canadian Afrofuturism art book entitled Cosmic Underground Northside: An Incantation of Black Canadian Speculative Discourse and Innerstandings to be re-released in the winter of 2020 after selling out everywhere.
