Prizm Art Fair Showcases Works From The Global African Diaspora During Art Basel Miami

MIAMI – During Art Basel Miami 2015, Prizm invites you to enjoy their season of events to celebrate the presentation of works from the global African diaspora and emerging markets.

Prizm is a cutting-edge art fair that is multidisciplinary in scope. Their goal is to expand the spectrum of exhibiting international artists from the global African diaspora and emerging markets.

Prizm Art Fair, in its third year, will be held in the Miami Modern District at 7300 Biscayne Blvd. The importance of Biscayne Boulevard cannot be overemphasized as it began and still remains a principal north/south artery thorough Miami. The buildings constructed along this wide corridor illustrate Miami’s changing fortunes; its changing demographics and the resultant change to the character of this principal thoroughfare.

This year Prizm has assembled a curatorial committee that includes Mikhaile Solomon, Rosie Gordon- Wallace and AM Weaver, to bring together an ensemble of diverse contemporary voices in visual arts practice.

They will exhibit works that address issues and explore themes that affect people of color globally including the foreboding hand injustice, alternative and projected realities in cultural constructs grounded in African Diasporic intelligentsia and the ancestral chord that connects the broad expanse of the African Diaspora across various regions, including the Americas, Africa, and the Caribbean.

Prizm Art Fair will feature the works of contemporary artists including: Dr. Deborah Willis Ph.D., Amber Robles-Gordon, T. Eliott Mansa, Asser Saint-Val, Brianna McCarthy, Olalekan Jeyifous, Wesley Clark, Margo Sawyer, FAAR, Alexis Peskine, to name a few. The select artists are truly redefining their world by bringing into focus socio-political and cultural issues pertinent to the people of African descent in our global community.
