Or, Dark Fecundity, the Center for Afrofuturist Studies, Iowa City

During her residency at the Center for Afrofuturist Studies at Public Space One (Iowa City, Iowa, USA), Sonya Dyer / the And Beyond Institute for Future Research will further develop their ongoing project Hailing Frequencies Open (HFO).

At PS1, Dyer will work on creating zones within the gallery inspired by the architecture of the Soviet missiles first used to send HeLa into Space, the Orthodox Jewish practice of Eruv and the ‘ready room’ used by Captains within Star Trek and other speculative Space travel narratives.

What happens when we recognise Dark Fecundity as a source of power?

For the public program on Saturday, Nov. 10 2018 at 6pm, the public is invited visit the gallery to hear more about the project and engage in conversation with the artist. All are welcome.
