Depth of Identity: Art as Memory and Archive

Start Date
August 11, 2022

The unprecedented exhibition Depth of Identity: Art as Memory and Archive explores the impact and legacy of the African, Indo, and Caribbean Diaspora across US cities and the Caribbean.

Experience the art and culture of the African Diaspora during a three-month exhibition from August 11 – October 20, 2022, at Green Space Miami, featuring nineteen artists. Scheduled events include visual art, music, film, teas, and art performances by Yacine Tilala Fall and Kim Yantis during the run of the exhibition.

It is through the eyes of practicing artists that the nuances of the concept of identity are revealed. What does identity hold? What does it reveal or remember? The exhibition Depth of Identity: Art as Memory and Archive juxtaposes works from ten countries, representing first-generation artists across time and geography through paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, photographs, and installations. The works represent artists from Caribbean countries including Jamaica, Barbados, Cuba, Guadeloupe, Suriname, and Haiti. Kenya and Korea are represented by artists Mazola Wa Mwasinghadi and Kim Myung -Sik.

The exhibition will be on view Wednesday to Saturday, 11 am – 6 pm with viewing by appointment on Sundays. Please contact Tanya Desdunes, DVCAI Executive Director by email at [email protected] for exhibition appointments and access.
