Unfuck the Future

Six national artists and poets transform 100 Days’ social channels into platforms for political art.

2018

With the support of a grant from Alternative Exposure 100 Days Action launches Unfuck the Future, an online artist in residence program series presenting new work by Indira Allegra, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Susana Eslava, Angela Hennessy, Jason Lazarus & Nick Wylie, and Allison Akootchook Warden.

The residency series features emerging and established artists from across the nation including artist, performer, and writer Indira Allegra (Oakland, CA); social practice artist Susana Eslava (San Francisco, CA and Bogotá, Colombia); interdisciplinary artist Angela Hennessy (Oakland, CA); artist and Muslim Zombie drag queen Faluda Islam (Zulfikar Ali Bhutto) (San Francisco, CA and Karachi, Pakistan); intermedia artists Jason Lazarus & Nick Wylie (Tampa, FL/Chicago, IL); and Iñupiaq interdisciplinary artist and rapper Allison Akootchook Warden (Anchorage, AK). 

Since November 2016, we’ve seen social media used in ways that were once unimaginable. With our current President regularly proposing new policies via Twitter, 100 Days Action takes back the cultural medium through this residency series. The artists of Unfuck the Future put forth an imaginative counternarrative to the ascendancy of values that threaten the vulnerable and brace us against the travails to come.
