Diaspora Voiced: Opening Reception

Diaspora Voiced: Opening Reception Start Date: Saturday 9/14/2019 — End Date: Saturday 9/14/2019 Admission:free Opening Reception: Saturday, September 14th, 4–6:30pm Exhibition Dates: September 9 – November 1, 2019 Rhythmix Cultural Works and K Gallery, in collaboration with curator Michelle Nye, present DIASPORA VOICED – A Bay Area Juried Art Exhibition, showcasing 19 diverse Bay Area artists. The entire exhibition runs September 9th – November 1st with an opening reception on Saturday, September 14th from 4:00-6:30pm. The Tate defines diaspora as “a term used to describe movements in population from one country to another and is often cited in discussions about identity.” The melting pot of the Bay Area offers opportunities for individuals and communities to cross, merge, and hybridize. Each person constructs a unique identity much like a collage artist composes a cohesive whole out of varied and juxtaposed parts. Touching on these themes, the selected artists energize the space with a range of personal and collective explorations, creating an exhibition mirroring the ways peoples migrate, settle, and thrive: from reflections on ancestral traditions, to depictions of the journey of refugees, to abstracted memories of native landscapes and missed family members, to celebrations of personal freedoms.
