Visit The Clay Studio for a First Friday reception celebrating the opening of Funkadelic Awakening: A Futuristic Resistance.

In this exhibition, Jennifer Ling Datchuck, Donté K. Hayes, and Salvador Jiménez-Flores actively disrupt the status quo - the norm created by Western culture - with new narratives that challenge European dominance on a global scale. Each artist speaks to specific themes of resistance related to their personal journey within their cultural identity, using a fluid combination of ideals stemming from Futurism and/or Afrofuturism.
