About the Event

Creative Justice Initiative, Corredor Afro and Ori Gallery are honored to have CMCArts as a collaborator intentionally bridging our creative presepctives from an Afrocentric unifying contmporary prespective. 

This is a process that we need to duplicate throughout the Caribbean, connecting our African cultural histories and contemporary voices.

Centering the cultural aesthetic of African descendants of the Spanish speaking Caribbean with the English speaking Caribbean seeks to frame our creative perspectives through the eyes of artists focused on sharing the contemporary vision that continues to honor our African legacy. The process of D-Colonizing Eurocentricity as the criteria of artistic excellence insists upon framing exhibitions, curriculums, public forums that center truth telling African descendents' creativity at all levels of our society. This is the objective of Absolutely Black/Absolutamente Negro /a/x.

Meet artists Celso from Puerto Rico and Choco from Cuba as well as the curators Dr. Marta Moreno Vega, Olga Chapman-Rivera and Wilfred Labiosa PhD
