Designed by the LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibition) 2021 Emerging Curators, Alex Jones and Kevin Bernard Moultrie-Daye, PARABLE 003 is an exhibition of contemporary Black visual and conceptual art that collectively draws on the long and storied history of Black communities and settlements as tools of resistance. Inspired by Octavia Butler’s unfinished Parable trilogy, the exhibition is a blueprint for the near future. By inviting artists to use the model of planned cities and communities, we explore how world-building is a method for manifesting Black sovereignty. Artists’ work will incorporate visual, material, and cultural aspects of a new free Black state. At its core, this exhibition translates California’s histories of Black migration, radical participation, and experimental living into a foundation for shaping Black futures.
