A "futuristic utopian female race" has taken up residence in Glassboro and can be found at the Rowan University Art Gallery.

A new exhibit titled "From Bones We Rise, the Empathics," which opened this past week and will be available for viewing by appointment through May 1, presents the sci fi-influenced works of New York-based artist Saya Woolfalk.

The 41-year-old native of Japan used her artistic vision to create a "complex, futuristic utopian culture and society of an interspecies female race." They are called the Empathics and 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 this imagined 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 Woolfalk's interest in anthropology, science fiction, folklore, mythology and Afrofuturism. Drawing upon her experience as a Black, Asian and white American, she explores "ideation of cultural hybridity as a pathway toward an equitable society." Woolfalk's vision of social evolution is attainable by adopting a culture that is in a continuous state of transformation and growth. Utilizing the tradition of folkloric storytelling, she creates narratives that manifest these aspirations.

Woolfalk has exhibited at museums, galleries and alternative spaces throughout Asia, Europe and the United States including numerous solo exhibitions and group shows at the Studio Museum in Harlem; MoMA PS1 on Long Island; the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. She teaches in the MFA program at Yale School of Art and the BFA and MFA programs at Parsons New School for Design.

Reservations to visit the exhibit can be made online. The gallery is located on the campus at 201 Mullica Hill Road, Glassboro.
