Caribbean Art: Affinity & Contrast.


Caribbean Art: Affinity & Contrast.

Exhibition runs May 9, 2019 – June 29, 2019.

While the cultures that converge in the Caribbean area are of multiple origins and forms of expressions.

January 30th, 2019 – MIRAMAR FL- Latin American Art Pavilion (LAAP) in cooperation with Miramar Cultural Center is proud to announce its next Art Exhibition, CARIBBEAN ART: Affinity & Contrast.

While the cultures that converge in the Caribbean area are of multiple origins and forms of expressions, they are also connected to each other. This interrelation (permeability of other cultures in the same territory), racial and idiomatic mixtures provoke changes in the base of original cultures and create a way of saying and doing that unifies them, giving rise to the birth of Caribbean culture, rich, varied, colorful, authentic and peculiar.

The exhibition will feature emerging contemporary artist from various islands of the Caribbean. Opening night will feature a dance performance by the Haitian dance group NSL Danse Ensemble, and an art tour performed by some of the participating artists.

“By holding this event with our valued partners at Miramar Cultural Center we hope to highlight all the talent that exists within the Caribbean archipelago , leading to a stronger representation of that region within the visual arts,” explained LAAP founder and director Maria Napoles.

Patrons will also have special engagements to interact with the artists as well as other performing acts. Such as a May 25th meet and greet, with West Indies Variety artist Majah Hype, who is currently touring in support of his musical comedy, “Are You Dumb?” Majah Hype will be performing his act that night and tickets will be available for purchase at the box office, or online.

With special hours on the following dates: 
May 9th (Opening Night) 6 pm – 8:30 pm
May 25th (Meet and Greet with Majah Hype) 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
