Fellow Travelers is an exhibition that initiates an encounter between people displaced by the deterioration of neoliberal policies around the world. At their most optimistic, these policies generated a vision of scientific progress symbolized by the race for space. While both NASA and the Soviet Space Program considered space terrain ripe for ideological expansion, artists such as musician-prophet Sun Ra re-imaged these paradigms to create utopian solutions for oppressed communities. Now, in another moment of mass migration, artists have once again turned to outer space in order to mitigate earthly catastrophes. From Afronauts to cosmonauts, Fellow Travelers affirms that art is a tool for testing limits, crossing boundaries, and providing a platform for voices of dissent. Organized by Katherine Rochester.
