"Futuristic Ancestry" is French artist Josèfa Ntjam’s solo U.S. museum show debut. The exhibition is a dynamic exploration of Afro-diasporic history, race, and revolution, alluding to Mother Earth and Ntjam’s own life experiences. Through a multi-sensory video experience, biomorphic sculptures, and photomontages printed on plexiglass and aluminum, this exhibition covers themes such as African mythology, biological processes, science fiction, and the ingrained but outdated ideas about origin, identity, and race that rule our world.

Featured in the exhibition, her 19-minute film "Matter Gone Wild" examines the revolution and systematic oppression through the lens of three distinct characters.
