New exhibition explores African fantasy and racing through art

In the Black Fantastic is a new exhibition at London’s Hayward Gallery that brings together artists from across the African diaspora whose work uses elements of fantasy, science fiction, African myth and spirituality to explore race and alternate realities.

Curated by Ekow Eshun, the exhibition features the work of British-Liberian artist Lina Iris Victor and African-American artist Rashaad Newsom, whose work spans technology, sculpture and video and celebrates black queer identity.

Produced, filmed and edited by Aaron Akiniemi.
