DUSTY FUNK! An Afro-Future Space Opera, is a solo exhibition by local artist David Brame. Using poetry, prose, comic books and mixed media Brame highlights, celebrates and contests the category of “other.” His daily experiences mirror that of many groups of people. With an intersecting identity that is constantly called into question as black, mixed race, working class, gay, straight, artist, creator, he is often implicitly or overtly asked to justify his existence as a person who occupies such identities. His work seeks to start a conversation about the implications of constantly being “othered” and how this plays out in the daily interactions with the so called western ideological majority and authoritarian figures.
