The Pleasures of Curating:
A Sensual Practice

Ingrid La Fleur (Detroit)

Ingrid La Fleur experiments with the many uses
of Afrofuturism within an urban landscape, from
teaching youth to running for mayor of Detroit. Afrofuturism
as an aesthetic becomes a psychosocial
healing mechanism that can be implemented
in order to ultimately challenge perspectives, shift
consciousness, create pleasure, and give birth to
new futures. It is through this investigation that
La Fleur has developed a co-creative curatorial
practice that has fully transformed as a result of
developing Afrofuturist programming through her
project AFROTOPIA.
