Event Description

Saya Woolfalk is a New York-based artist who created a complex, futuristic utopian culture and society of an interspecies female race called The Empathics. Their mythology and story of origins began with the discovery of chimeric bones that triggered them to metamorphose into a plant, animal, and human hybrid creature. In modern Empathic society, anyone may elect to undergo the experience of interspecies hybridization, thus choosing to become an Empathic and a socially evolved being.

The world of the Empathics emerged from the artist's investigations and interest in anthropology, science fiction, folklore, mythology, and Afrofuturism. Drawing upon her
own experience as a Black, Asian, and white American she explores ideation of cultural hybridity as a pathway toward an equitable society.

Rowan University Art Gallery is open by appointment only. Please reserve a timed ticket in advance to visiting the gallery. All visitors must wear a mask and practice safe distancing.
