An Idea Called Tomorrow
Experience contemporary art that gives expression to what a more civil future might look like. Inviting visitors to contemplate the active role we can all play in bringing about a more just, equitable world, the commissioned works in An Idea Called Tomorrow explore issues relating to social justice today-among them environmental sustainability, shelter for all, and cooperation and peace. Featured artists include Kim Abeles, Castillo, Dominique Moody, Graham Goddard, and Asual Kwahuumba & Karen Seneferu. Their creations range from the technological, as in Kwahuumba & Seneferu's Techno-kisi, to the recyclable, as in Moody's The Nomad. All of them celebrate individual responsibility in building a better tomorrow.
Co-conceived by the California African American Museum (CAAM) and the Skirball in association with the Skirball's presentation ofRoad to Freedom, An Idea Called Tomorrow is organized by CAAM, with works on view at both institutions. Be sure to see An Idea Called Tomorrow - 1 at CAAM.
