Can science fiction save the world? Artists Chitra Ganesh and Saya Woolfalk tell us what's possible through art.

From Star Trek’s Lieutenant Uhura to Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower series, the science-fiction genre has become a rich space to experiment and explore alternate histories and identities for women and other marginalized identities.

Chitra Ganesh and Saya Woolfalk, two artists featured in the exhibition Cantos of the Sibylline Sisterhood, discuss their work and creative use of the genre to navigate and comment on the terrain of representation and identity. The conversation will be moderated by Laura Cooper, Los Angeles based artist and faculty, ArtCenter’s undergraduate Fine Art program.
