“Presuppose that beyond this visible world, there is an invisible world striving to manifest, and it is our job to uncover it.” – D. Scot Miller

The Radical Collage is a political exhibition, by nature, seeking to reinvest itself within the uncanny depictions of Black bodies residing in distant pasts and presents via the cultural aesthetic and liberatory framework of Afrosurrealism.
