This year’s annual CalArts conference on digital culture, This Isn’t About the Future: Black Digital Culture Now, focuses on what it’s like to be black in a connected world where race is at once invisible and omnipresent. Curated by poet and faculty member Douglas Kearney, the two-day program begins Friday night at REDCAT with Alexander Weheliye’s keynote speech on R&B’s technological history. Programming continues through Saturday at the West Hollywood Library with panels on the “black cyber body,” Internet colonialism and the cloud with speakers like director Thomas Allen Harris.
