KEENAN DAILEY | Unchained

Unchained

I believe that this installation is an opportunity to serve the black cultural voice and I would like to contribute my understanding to that conversation with a piece that depicts black superheroism in a non-traditional fashion. The preliminary work for this installation is titled “Hero” and is an exploration of the concept “hope punk”, similar to cyberpunk. Hope punk imagines a utopian future as opposed to a dystopian one. I want my depiction of afrofuturism to be one that has space for healing through representational imagery and I believe superheroism is a strong direction.
