Diaspora in a Time of Change
Exhibition Dates | March 15 – May 1, 2021
Reception Date | March 18, 2021 | 5:30pm- 8:30pm
Complimentary Admission for all ages.
The Coral Springs Museum of Art invited artists or artist teams to explore the theme, “DIASPORA” in a time of change: Diaspora is a term used to describe movements in population from one country to another and is often cited in discussions about identity.
In relation to art, the term diaspora is used to discuss artists who have migrated from one part of the world to another, (or whose families have), and who express their diverse experiences of culture and identity in the work they make; often expressing alternative narratives, and challenging the ideas and structures of the established art world.
During the opening reception we will announce the winner of the show. We will also be going live and hosting our Virtual/In-person hosted show “Artsplaining”. We will be interviewing the artist and speaking about the show.
