DESCRIPTION

An Idea Called Tomorrow-1
A Skirball/CAAM Collaborative Presentation

Co-conceived by the California African American Museum and the Skirball Cultural Center as one exhibit split between each institution, An Idea Called Tomorrow is intended to inspire visitors to reflect upon the active role we must all play in bringing about a more just, equitable, and peaceful future. On view at CAAM is An Idea Called Tomorrow-1 showcasing works by fifteen contemporary artists imagining what a civil future looks like. Among the artists are Abdelali Dahrouche, Dominique Moody, Joyce Dallal, and Nobue Betty Kano. The artists’ ethnicities and backgrounds are as diverse as their presentations, which address a broad range of social justice issues of both regional and global relevance, such as environmental sustainability, shelter for all, human equity, equal access and respect, healthy living, reconciliation and forgiveness, and cooperation and peace.
