ART AFRICA MIAMI ARTS FAIR
Established in 2011, Art Africa's inaugural exhibition in Overtown Miami was the first of many exhibtions during the Art Basel Miami festivities. The inagural Art Africa opening set a precedent as the largest showcase of contemporary artists from the African Diaspora during Art Basel and will continue growing with a larger showcase planned for 2017 at the Historic Clyde Killens Hall in Historic Overtown.
"Art has always been a tool to claim space, build power and to question the injustices that have shaped our social experiences," Neil Hall, Founder. In the world of art and culture, artists are responsible for offering the viewer a chance to challenge society by bringing new meaning to the way we perceive the world.
Culture is space where we can introduce ideas, attack emotions, change values and find inspiration. Art is where we can imagine what change looks and feels like. Come join us as we seek to do our part in transforming our world to be more just and beautiful in all we do. This year, we continue our transformation of the historic community of Overtown. We invite you to participate.
Art Africa Miami Arts Fair is a multidisciplinary exhibition of fine contemporary art from the global African Diaspora. The central idea of Art Africa Miami is to present an array of visual works that pay homage to the centrality of Africa and its descendants contribution to the modern art world.
Our aim is to continue advancing artists from the African Diaspora, including artists from Africa, North America, South America, the Caribbean, and Europe. Art Africa Miami brings a vital and essential cultural service to the South Florida community, lending the Magic City a true international flair.
