Art 25: Art in the Twenty-Fifth Century
Art 25: Art in the Twenty-Fifth Century is a dynamic collective comprised of artists Lisa Jarrett (Portland, OR) Lehua M. Taitano (Santa Rosa, CA), and Jocelyn Kapumealani Ng (Honolulu, HI). It is the culmination of years (and ancestral lifetimes) of shared curiosity, vision, and an outright insistence to see their cultures thrive within contemporary art. Art 25 investigates how Indigenous and Black art lives in the 21st century and collaborates with contemporary artists worldwide who envision how it will flourish in the 25th century and beyond. In forming a future archive, the collective interrogates historical access, curation, collection, consumption, and preservation of Indigenous and Black art and culture.
Art 25's inaugural project is Future Ancestors.
