The series of vibrant, mixed-media works introduces us to Atlantica, April Bey’s home planet and also home to visionaries, Womanist Matriarchies, Earth analysis, black thought, and queer adventures in design.


In this online exclusive Artsy exhibition, artist April Bey shares Atlantica with us: "Atlantica was once a nameless planet and short story told to me by my black father as a way to explain racism—why I looked different than my mother who was white and why children at school made fun of my hair. He told me we would always be different because we were aliens sent from another planet to observe and report on Earth. Altantica reflects a space of celebration and Earth is referenced and reported on as an outsider would."
