  • About This Exhibition

    Inter | Sectionality: Diaspora Art from the Creole City, is a bold, multi-regional, multi disciplinary 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 Arts and Design and Rosie Gordon-Wallace, founder and chief curator of the Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator, Inc. (DVCAI) of Miami, Florida, 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, is being presented at a time when Diaspora artists and voices are challenging social injustices, celebrating identities, and re-activating 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. The exhibition is grouped around themes that encompass the diaspora and "Creole City" life stories, memory, politics, myth, religion, and culture. The exhibition showcases the works of artists that represent a broad spectrum of the African Diaspora. This global exhibition represents 25 Miami based artists, 17 countries and two Charlotte guest artists—Monique Luck and Stephanie J. Woods.

    The exhibition consists of twenty-five visual artists from seventeen (17) countries and two guest artists from North Carolina.
