Our ability to conceive of ourselves surviving and thriving in the future is crucial to manifesting prosperity as a lived reality. What we consume today—the stories we read, the films we watch, and the World we experience—all directly impact our capacity to imagine what's possible for us tomorrow. Unfortunately, for Queer, Trans, and BIPOC people, self-actualization possibilities are difficult to envision in a world where they're forced to define themselves against the backdrop of a dominant culture that stereotypes, excludes, and often harms them.
Other World seeks to reframe what's possible for those who are too often pushed to the fringe by re-centering those margins through stories of alternate futures and worlds created on their own terms. This exhibition lifts the voices that draw upon their own history, communities, and movements to ask: Who are we? Where have we come from? What do we believe in? What fills us with hope?
