Featuring works by Dimitry Saïd Chamy, Valerie Jordan, Clive King, Jacek J. Kolasinski, Blanca Pujals & Alfonso Borragan, Mette Tommerup, Kristap Zarinš, and Elina Zunde

"As both curator and participating artist, this exhibition was partly prompted by recent work of mine that explores trans-national connections between Poland and the global South, Haïti in particular. The research took me to Miami's Little Haiti where I encountered an extraordinary poet, storyteller, dramatist, and cultural ambassador of this part of Miami, Mr. Jan Mapou who generously granted me access to his digital collection of historical postcards depicting Haiti and its people dating back to the early 1900s."J.K.

Art Basel at Griots Gallery and Academy

Curated by Frank Frazier

Featuring artists: Fanta Celah, "Choke", Myles Cordae, Najee Dorsey, Frank Frazier, Al Johnson, Dindga McCannon, Frederick Douglas Moore, Seidah Muhammad, Don T. O'Bannon, Angela Prox, Tracy Ann Simmonds, Harold Smith, Burl Washington, and Herschel Yelder. 

Though blacks in the diaspora are famous for their musical and dance contributions to the world, their contributions to the visual arts are much less well known or recognized. It is the goal of the gallery and academy to increase the awareness of the diverse artistic production of the black visual artists and show their value and contribution to the multicultural heritage of the United States. The gallery provides a mirror by which diaspora artists can see themselves and understand their reality. They interpret this reality and show it to the diaspora community and the rest of the world.

“Forever Celia,” is the most comprehensive exhibit ever assembled on the Queen of Salsa, Celia Cruz. The largest exhibition of artifacts from Cruz’s life and work. The scale of the show will surpass that of the 2005 Smithsonian exhibit on the singer’s life. The show will feature items from Celia’s trademark extravagant wardrobe as well as hundreds of awards, photographs, videos, and never-before-seen artifacts culled from her personal collection.

“American Museum of the Cuban Diaspora attempts to understand the impact the Cuban Diaspora has had on our world today. We showcase the history, culture and contribution the Cuban Diaspora has given to the arts and humanities. We serve the people of Miami and visitors from around the world that wish to look deeper into a history that is often underreported.”
