Relic, inspired by the traveling billboard piece, "There Are Black People in the Future," by artist Alisha Wormsley, explores what cultural Black artifacts and emblems of today will be left behind to reflect our time here and inform the future. McKissick, poses the question, “what will we find when we get there?” to explore what shapes future identities in the beyond. Artists Abigail Lucien, Janelle Ayana Miller, Kevin Demery, Lakela Brown, Rhonda Wheatley, and Shonna Pryor explore Black relics through documentation, intuition, collecting, spirituality, and the land through mineral and food.
