Inter | Sectionality - Diaspora Art from the Creole City


What’s Happening?

Inter|Sectionality: Diasport Art from the Creole City is a bold, multi-regional, multi-disciplinary exploration of the emergence of the "Creole City" as a local, regional and global phenomenon.

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.

Internationally recognized curator Rosie Gordon-Wallace, president and chief curator of Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator, Inc. (DVCAI), designed this exhibition to provide a lens through which communities and community leaders internationally can begin to better understand themselves, their diversities, and their unlimited possibilities.

The exhibition is FREE to the public till May 31, 2021 at Moore 200, 4040 N.E. Second Avenue, 2nd Floor, Miami, Florida 33137.

Thursday- Saturday, 11 am - 6 pm. Sundays by appointment only. Call 786-306-0191 to reserve your visit.
