Stacey Robinson: Branding the AfroFuture
Mandeville Gallery | Union College
March 2017-March 2018
Stacey Robinson, assistant professor of graphic design at the University of Illinois, is an Arthur Schomburg fellow who completed his M.F.A. at the University at Buffalo. His work discusses ideas of “Black Utopias” as spaces of peace away from colonial influence by considering Black protest movements and the art movements that document(ed) them.
“I create multimedia works as resistance to Black oppression globally. My work looks at past and present protest movements and the art that documented them. In detail, my drawing, painting, comics, writings and performances examine Black culture and the Black body as a technology from past to speculative future in a narrative that addresses ideas and the intricacy of love, sex, religion and decolonization.” – Stacey Robinson
