Creative Pinellas Announces "IMAGINE BLACKNESS" Featuring USF Professors of Art and Sociology

January 19 - February 26

Join Creative Pinellas for IMAGINE BLACKNESS: ALTERNATE REALITIES AND COLLECTIVE DREAMING, a collaborative exploration of Blackness and Black representation through AI-generated images created by artist, McArthur Freeman II, and sociologist, Elizabeth Hordge-Freeman.

From a botanical paradise laden with richly hued figures to an otherworldly futuristic sci-fi cosmos, this exhibition invites viewers to engage in the act of collective dreaming as a social intervention, which moves beyond the reality of the present world to (re)-imagine and discover new ways of seeing and being. Inspired by Black speculative fiction and Afro-Futurism, the project offers viewers interactive opportunities to question, inspire, and escape by engaging the viewers’ own imaginations in the co-construction of the future and alternate worlds.
