Black Metropolis

October 1, 2022 @ 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM EDT

 Tim Fielder, DieselFunk Studios

West Harlem Arts – a collaborative initiative of The Children’s Art Carnival and Centro Civico Cultural Dominicano – is pleased to present BLACK METROPOLIS, a 30-year retrospective of Glyph Award-winning illustrator and Visual Afrofuturist Tim Fielder, co-organized by DieselFunk Studios.

The multi-media exhibition features close to 100 published and unpublished drawings, animated clips, and digital stills from Fielder’s decades-long career – visually transcribing his cultural migration from Mississippi to New York City to working the obscure margins of alternative weekly editorial cartoons, designing black rock music flyers, staking his place in the field of Visual Afrofuturism, African religious modalities, and mainstream pop-culture.

Afrofuturist-themed artwork in the area of graphic novels and concept designs will range from Fielder’s work with The Village Voice and Marvel Comics to his projects Matty’s Rocket and the groundbreaking HarperCollins-Amistad graphic novel epic, ‘INFINITUM: An Afrofuturist Tale’.

BLACK METROPOLIS will be on view February 1 – March 31, 2022 at The Children’s Art Carnival (62 Hamilton Terrace, New York, NY 10031).

Visiting Hours: Tuesdays through Sundays (12 PM -7 PM)

Tim Fielder is an Illustrator, concept designer, cartoonist, and animator born in Tupelo, Mississippi, and raised in Clarksdale, Mississippi.
