“Afrofuturism” is a critical-creative framework for
the realities of people of color. Artists replace default, culturally European
protagonists and tropes with those from the African diaspora—with an
eye to the future, to transcendence and liberation.
Too-familiar stories are thereby defamiliarized and revealed,
shattered and renewed.
Afrofuturist is Hayes’ second solo with garner narrative. His particular gift
is a comedian’s touch for grim matters: provocative juxtapositions of
pop and high culture, history and sci-fi, what came before and is yet to come.
