Across February and March, Carnegie Hall is hosting "Afrofuturism," a citywide festival exploring the thriving aesthetic and cultural movement that looks to the future through a Black cultural lens, intersecting music, visual art, literature, politics, science fiction, and technology. With more than 80 events, the festival kicks off with a performance by Flying Lotus (February 12) and includes musical programming as well as talks, performances, exhibitions, and online offerings presented by more than 70 leading cultural and academic institutions across New York City and beyond. At Carnegie Hall, expect concerts by celebrated artists featuring jazz, funk, R&B, Afrobeat, hip-hop, electronic music, and more. You can find the full lineup here.
