The artists address themes of pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial history, identity, culture, intersectionality and activism from the perspectives of contemporary African Canadians. The array of narratives are boldly expressed in portraits and other forms. The works reflect an afro futurist aesthetic while incorporating elements of symbolism and ancestry through photography, sculpture and dance.
