pro·lep·sis – (noun) 1. The representation of a thing as existing before it actually does. 2. An interjected scene that represent events in the future, a flashforward. 3. The anticipation and answering of possible objections in rhetorical speech.

The student artists of Professor Azin Seraj’s Media for Social Change exhibition will be presenting two multi-media installations that are both future-thinking and rooted in a critical analysis of existing structures and dynamics.

The recent election marks a turning point in American History. As a result of a divisive and contentious campaign, the country finds itself conflicted, grappling with issues ranging from race/class/gender/sexuality to gun violence, health care, and the environment, among many others. Given the realities of today, how can we re-imagine our collective future?

Please join us for an Opening Reception on Wednesday, April 12th, 2017.
