A new exhibit about science fiction in Latin American landed at the Queens Museum earlier this month, introducing New Yorkers to a “unique artistic landscape” for exploring colonialism and the Americas.
“Mundos Alternos: Art and Science Fiction in the Americas” unites contemporary artists from across the Americas who, according to the Queens Museum “have tapped into science fiction’s capacity to imagine new realities, both utopian and dystopian.”
“The exhibition offers a groundbreaking account of the intersections among science fiction, techno-culture and the visual arts,” the Museum continued.
Mundos Alternos features art from across Latin America as well as work created by Latinx artists in the United States. The exhibition will remain at the Queens Museum until August 19.
