Global African Diaspora Curator Remains Committed to the Celebration of Afrocentric Art and Culture During Art Basel Miami 2022
Miami based Global Cultural Curator of Contemporary African Diaspora Art, Ludlow E. Bailey, continues to shape the narrative of the phenomenal contribution of African descent in the art world. His work and vision in the Global African Diaspora Renaissance Movement represents a consistent demonstration of Black achievement in the visual arts world.
Art Basel Miami Beach (also known as “Miami Art Week”), and its satellite art shows and exhibition, represents not only one of the largest global art events in the world, attracting over 80,000 visitors and over 260 staged gallery events, but is a representation of some of the most celebrated established arts work and an exhibition opportunity for emerging artist and their work to be seen globally by investors, collectors, museums, galleries, artists, brokers and dealers who will descend on Miami to see and experience art.
Although Black Art continues to be a major growing economic drive, the number of participating dealers, gallerists and curators from the African Diaspora remains under-represented as a small percent. Consequently, they cannot bring their clients’ work to exhibition at the main fair at the Miami Beach Convention Center where the largest number of visitors will convene. Over 95 per cent of Black Art exhibited, and or sold in the main exhibition center are by dealers outside of the African Diaspora.
Conscious of this disparity in opportunity and in celebration of the significant contribution that Black Art is making to the Global Contemporary Art Marker, Curator, Ludlow E. Bailey founded The Annual CADA Art Basel Panel Discussion on Contemporary African Diaspora Art.
This year, the Panel Discussion will celebrate its 13th anniversary, and will focus on the black Art Renaissance Movement and Experience. The complete event lineup includes:
