Bridging Boundaries: Redefining Diaspora OPENING RECEPTION
Curated and produced collaboratively between the African Students Association, Postcrypt Art Gallery and Art in FLUX Harlem, the artworks in Bridging Boundaries: Redefining Diaspora are the fruit of relationships developed between selected Columbia University student artists and mentoring visual artists based in the Harlem area. The exposition presents the narratives of artists working together across diverse mediums, interests, and cultural backgrounds.
Taking place during February 2014, this event will engage with Black History Month at Columbia University through programs ranging from spoken word and musical performances, panel discussions, and a question-answer session with the participating artists. Bridging Boundaries: Redefining Diaspora’s inclusive program mirrors the synergies of the works themselves.
