Enjoy this imaginative showcase of African diasporic worldviews that represents a wide spectrum of possibilities to alter your reality, from Afrofuturism, African futurism and Afro-surrealism to magical realism and science fiction. In this archived presentation (originally aired on October 26, 2021), host Levyi-Alexander Love introduces the vibrant and expressive vocals of D’Andrew Ricketts-Dunn and Markus Aurelyus – spellbinding artists who identify as belonging to the Black LGBTQ2S+ community. The multidisciplinary storytelling celebration includes intimate song associations, spoken word performances and candid conversations about elevating Black artists today.
In The Moment was a musical showcase curated by Levyi-Alexander J. Love with the assistance of a not-for-profit organization previously referred to as the Black Speculative Arts Movement (BSAM) Canada. Since that time, the non-profit and its members, Nico Taylor and Queen Kukoyi, have gone on to operate as Oddside Arts, a cultural arts organization that merges art, technology and wellness through a Black speculative lens.
