Inter | Sectionality: Diaspora Art from the Creole City is a bold, multiregional, multidisciplinary curatorial collaboration and exploration of the emergence of the “Creole City” as a local, regional and global phenomenon. Internationally recognized curators Sanjit Sethi, former director of the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design, and Rosie Gordon-Wallace, founder, president and curator of DVCAI (Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator) have designed this collaboration to provide a lens through which communities and community leaders internationally can begin to better understand themselves, their diversities and their unlimited possibilities.
Inter | Sectionality: Diaspora Art from the Creole City will be presented in our nation’s capital at a time when diaspora artists and voices are challenging social justice, celebrating identities, and reactivating and bridging communities through contemporary art and scholarship. The complexities and diversities represented by this exhibit are emergent and, in many cases, ascendant across the world.
Highlighting the work of 25 Miami-affiliated visual artists, along with two guest artists, the exhibit is grouped around themes that encompass diaspora and Creole City life stories, memory, politics, myth, religion and culture. Special performances and programs will be presented throughout the run, which will be from Nov. 14, 2019, through March 20, 2020.
