"Radio Imagination" celebrates the life and work of Pasadena science fiction writer Octavia E. Butler (1947–2006). Organized by Clockshop, the program centers on ten contemporary art and literary commissions that explore Butler’s archive at the Huntington Library. New work will premiere alongside performances, film screenings, and literary events throughout the year.

"Radio Imagination" artists and writers will conduct first-hand research in Butler’s archive at the Huntington Library and create new work based on their research. Works by Creative Capital supported artists Malik Gaines and Alexandro Segade, Connie Samaras, and Cauleen Smith, among others will be included in the exhibition.
